Even more significant are the outstanding results this work produced for our clients.”

The ADDY competition is the industry’s largest and most representative competition — attracting more than 50,000 entries every year in local ADDY competitions from more than 200 AAF Clubs from coast to coast. Gold winners from the show will automatically move on to the regional District competition, competing with agencies from Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware, Virginia and Washington, D.C. A win at the District level guarantees moving on to the National ADDY Competition, and results will be announced at the 2013 June AAF Conference on June 8 in Phoenix, Arizona.
