Nominations for the Silver Medal Awards are now open!

The American Advertising Federation’s Silver Medal Award Program was established in 1959 to recognize men and women who have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering the industry’s standards, creative excellence and responsibility in areas of social concern. Annually, AAF member clubs bestow this honor upon outstanding members of the local advertising community.

Past winners have managed radio stations, corporate, and retail ad departments. They have been publishers of magazines and newspapers. They have been agency owners, creative directors, copywriters, media buyers or account executives. Other winners have owned market research firms, recording studios and video production companies. Media sales reps, freelancers and printers also are among previous honorees.
