AAF Treasure Coast logo


The mission of the American Advertising Federation Treasure Coast is to protect and promote the wellbeing of advertising. We accomplish this through a unique, nationally coordinated grassroots network of advertisers, agencies, media companies, local advertising clubs and college chapters.

The American Advertising Federation protects and promotes the well-being of advertising. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., it acts as the “Unifying Voice of Advertising.” The AAF is the oldest national advertising trade association, representing 40,000 professionals in the advertising industry. The AAF has a national network of over 200 ad clubs across the country. Through its more than 225 college chapters, the AAF provides 7,500 advertising students with real world case studies and recruitment connections to corporate America. The AAF also has nearly 100 blue chip corporate members that are advertisers, agencies and media companies, compromising the nation’s leading brands and corporations.

American Advertising Awards

and Gala Ceremony

The American Advertising Awards competition, home of the ADDYs, recognizes and rewards the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising. It is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting over 40,000 entries every year. 


All across the country, local entrants compete to win ADDY Awards—recognition as the very best in our market. At the second tier, winners compete against winners from 16 other local clubs across Florida and Caribbean Islands in the AAF-Fourth District competition. District ADDY winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national stage of the American Advertising Awards.


Entering the American Advertising Awards supports the entire advertising industry, because the AAF, AAF-Fourth District and AAF-SWFL use the proceeds to enhance advertising through programs such as public service, internships, advocacy groups, advertising education, and consumer awareness.
