Significant change due to COVID-19 pandemic: The entry and judging process for all categories in the 2021 American Advertising Awards will be completely digital. This decisions was made in alignment with AAF National, and in consideration for the health and safety of our members and judges. To accommodate for the change to physical judging, extra exhibit uploads (up to five images, and one video) have been added to the entry portal for all categories that previously required a physical entry. These details are noted within the online entry forms.
