Spotlight Awards 2019
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. These awards will be presented at the annual American Advertising Awards gala.
Nominations will be accepted through from December 1, 2018 through January 31, 2019.
After making your nomination, be sure to save February 22 for the 2019 American Advertising Awards at Eastbank Venue & Lounge.
Thanks for taking the time to shine a light on someone special.

Service Person of the Year

Please evaluate your nominations carefully.
