The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting more than 50,000 entries every year in local American Advertising competitions. The mission of the American Advertising Awards competition is to recognize and reward creative excellence in the art of advertising. Competition entries are judged based on creativity, originality and creative strategy.

Over the past six years of participating in the American Advertising Awards competition, Red Dot has earned four (4) Judges’ Choice, five (5) Best of Show, 31 Gold and 46 Silver AAA awards at the local level, as well as one (1) Gold and five (5) Silver awards at the District level.

Conducted annually, the local American Advertising Awards is the first of a three-tier, national competition. As a winner at the local level, Red Dot is eligible to compete at the District level. District winners are then eligible for the ultimate competition, the National AAA, presented in June by the American Advertising Federation.
