Bringing Home the Gold: AAF Dothan’s American Advertising Awards

There’s nothing quite like the American Advertising Awards here in Dothan, AL. Not only is it a competition among our local friends and colleagues, but it’s also a way to recognize all of the hard work and creativity throughout the Wiregrass area. We are so grateful to create work for our clients that all of us here at PushCrankPress are passionate about; then, being able to submit our work to the American Advertising Awards and reflect on this past year was the perfect motivation to continue doing what we love and moving our clients forward.

The American Advertising Awards

The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest and most represented competition, with a mission to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising. An “ADDY” is the name of the award given to recognize those who place either Gold, Silver, or Bronze.
Entering the American Advertising Awards supports the entire advertising industry. This year’s local event was entirely virtual. Several professional entries and student entries submitted their best work from various disciplines such as Sales & Marketing, Print Advertising, Out-of-Home & Ambient Media, and Online/interactive, to name a few. Judges were then able to evaluate all online submissions of work and rewarded the most creative and well-executed campaigns.
We were thankful to participate in this year’s American Advertising Awards, reflect on this past year, and celebrate the resilience of all the creatives in our local community. We received the Best of Show Award, a Judges Choice Award, two Gold American Advertising Awards, and two Silver American Advertising Awards.
