American Advertising Awards


    First, congratulations to all the winners of Triangle AdFed’s 2020 American Advertising Awards. This competition celebrates the work of both professionals and students in our community. Second, thank you all for entering and for all of those who braved the snow to make the night one to remember. Photos from the evening and a PDF of the Awards Book can be found in the links to the left.

    We would also like to thank our sponsors and volunteers one more time:


    Also, a big shoutout to our host Adam Cohen and the talented Dan Nelson, who captured the night in paint for us.

    Take It To The Next Level:
    The Triangle AdFed uses funds from our local competition to cover the cost of forwarding Gold ADDY winners to the District 3 level. For Silver ADDY winners, you can forward your work in the District 3 competition, by paying the district entry fee. Those costs are $85 for a single entry and $95 for a campaign. More details to come, but please contact [email protected] if you are interested in forwarding your Silver ADDY to the next level.

    Books, Trophies and Certificates:
    If you didn’t pick up your Bronze ADDY, or you would like an extra copy of the Awards Book, you can pick them up at reception desk at French | West | Vaughan (112 E Hargett St). If you would like to order a duplicate award, or if you would like to purchase a Bronze trophy in place of your Bronze certificate, contact [email protected].  

    Market Hall Painting:
    In an effort to support upcoming programs, we are auctioning Dan Nelson’s painting of Market Hall in the snow. More details to come.
