The Addy’s can be likened to the Oscar’s of our local advertising and marketing industry. At the national level, they are called the American Advertising Awards, but locally, we’ve chosen to continue to call them the Addy’s. Our organization focuses on education and career development for those pursuing careers in the arts, marketing and advertising; we support legislative representation on issues concerning our industry and we give back to our community. The Addy’s recognize and award the best annual creative work in our region. The event brings together our community of artists – creative directors, art directors, designers, developers and more.
