This is weird.
We don’t know what to do with ourselves.
We are supposed to be preparing for the show.
What should we do now?
Well, we can still celebrate our amazing creative community.
Did you know that we have been showing Category Videos during our ADDY show for the last 10 YEARS?  Yup, 10 YEARS!
Let’s take a trip down memory lane and celebrate the creative teams that shared their talents and kick it up a notch by voting for your favorites.   
The rules are simple, take a look at the videos on our Vimeo Page, (again, there are 10 years worth = 70 videos, roughly two minutes each).  
Share your favorite on social (FB, Twitter, Instagram & LinkedIn), being sure to tag us @aafpgh  and use #pittsburghaddyspostponed.   You MUST TAG US and use the # for your vote to count!   
You may vote for as many of the videos as you would like.   Voting is open to everyone, so share away!  We are going to leave voting open until we have a new show date.
The creative team behind the video with the most votes will win a prize of some sort (hey, we are still figuring things out) and we may even also pull the name of one of you that votes for another yet to be determined prize.
So, are you ready?  
You can find all of the category videos on our Vimeo Page, 
While you are there, give us a follow.  You will also see a few other videos that we love that honor members of our community. They are all worth watching, but, are not a part of this contest, (but really, watch them anyway, we love them).

In response to the escalating Coronavirus situation, the American Advertising Pittsburgh has postponed our annual ADDY gala scheduled for Friday.

We look forward to recognizing the area’s outstanding creative achievements at a future date to be determined.  All tickets will be honored.

Our thanks go out to The Wintergarden at PPG Place for their flexibility, and to our sponsors who make this event possible:






Thank you for your understanding, and we will be keeping all our members updated as the situation sorts itself out.

The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting over 40,000 entries every year in local AAF Club competitions. The mission of the American Advertising Awards competition is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising.

Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the local phase is the first of a three-tier, national competition. Concurrently, all across the country, local entrants vie to win ADDY Awards – recognition as the very best in their markets. At the second tier, local winners compete against winners from other local clubs in one of 15 district competitions. District ADDY winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national stage of the ADDY Awards.

Entering the American Advertising Awards supports the entire advertising industry because the AAF and it’s local and district affiliates use the proceeds to enhance advertising through programs such as public service, internships, advocacy groups, advertising education, and consumer awareness.
