AAF: CR-IC SPOTLIGHT AWARDS
Do you know an outstanding individual in our community?
Each year at the American Advertising Awards gala, we present a number of Spotlight Awards that recognize outstanding contributions to our chapter, our community, and to the advertising and marketing industry. So ask yourself: Who would you call the Ad Person of the Year? Whose devotion to the club merits the Service Person of the Year award? Who’s the relative newcomer in your scene that you’d label a Rising Star? Who’s worthy of the Hall of Fame?
Read the criteria and then nominate who you think deserves special recognition. All nominations MUST include a candidate’s biographical information and reason for nomination. Nominations will only be accepted through February 2—so don’t delay! These awards will be presented at the annual American Advertising Awards gala.
After making your nomination, be sure to save February 17 for our awards gala. It will be held at the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library and it promises to be a lot of fun. We’ll have more information for you soon!
Thanks for taking the time to shine a light on someone special!
