Omaha, NE (June 12, 2017) – With over 40,000 entries across the country, the American Advertising Awards are the world’s largest and statistically the toughest advertising competition. The competition represents the true spirit of creative excellence by recognizing all forms of advertising and cultivates the highest creative standards in our industry.
The American Advertising Federation (AAF) continues to reflect its core values that help sustain innovation, creativity, and inclusion.
Each year people from AAF clubs across the US volunteer thousands of hours to make the American Advertising Awards a success. It also takes the work of hundreds of professional judges who donated their time and creative expertise to evaluate the many entries in the competition and select our winners.
We congratulate Swanson Russell on winning a GOLD ADDY at the American Advertising Awards on Saturday, June 10th in New Orleans.
Greg Bousquet, Creative Director at Swanson Russell was honored at the American Advertising Awards for Swanson Russell’s winning Photography Campaign for their client Humminbird, Humminbird Brand Photography.
Congratulations to Greg and his team at Swanson Russell!

More about the American Advertising Awards
Conducted annually by the AAF, the local Ad Club phase is the first of a three-tier, national competition. Concurrently, all across the country, local entrants vie to win ADDY Awards – recognition as the very best in their markets. At the second tier, local ADDY winners competed against winners from other local clubs in one of 15 district competitions. District ADDY winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national stage of the American Advertising Awards. Entry in local Ad Club competition is the first step toward winning a national ADDY.
Entering the American Advertising awards supports the entire advertising industry, because the AAF and its local and district affiliates use the proceeds to enhance advertising through programs such as public service, internships, advocacy groups, advertising education, and consumer awareness.
Selection of the most creative entry in each category is affected by a scoring process in which a panel of judges evaluates all creative dimensions of every entry. A GOLD ADDY is recognition of the highest levelove of creative excellence and is judged to be superior to all other entries in the category. Entries that are also considered outstanding and worthy of recognition receive a SILVER ADDY. The number of awards given in each category is determined by the judges, based on the relative quality of work in that category.
