Get Involved

Interested in getting involved with the Space Coast AMERICAN ADVERTISING AWARDS?

Joining the AMERICAN ADVERTISING AWARD Committee is a great opportunity to volunteer with your local Advertising Federation chapter. It’s also a chance to network with some very talented industry professionals in your community. Every year this committee meets to plan out the entire local award competition. We’re always looking for volunteers to help coordinate judges, design and develop the website, email blasts, billboards and other marketing collateral, setting up for Gallery Night and planning the Award Gala event. There’s something for everyone no matter your skill set. Take a look below to figure out what committee you’d like to be a part of.

Entry Committee

The Entry Committee is responsible for determining deadlines for American Advertising Award entries, working with the Communications Committee to write and distribute news releases for the award Call For Entries, event promotion and announcement of the winners and managing entry submissions and help collect entry fees.

Judging Committee

The Judging Committee selects 3-4 judges from ad agencies across the country and coordinates travel, food and lodging for the Judging Weekend. This committee is also responsible for scoring and communicating the winners to the Awards Committee.

Communications Committee

The Communications Committee is responsible for all the creative needed to promote the local American Advertising Awards. This committee will be working closely with all other committees to coordinate news releases, ad and billboard campaigns as well as sending out announcements and news to all members.

Sponsorship Committee

The Sponsorship Committee will develop, communicate and coordinate sponsorship opportunities for the ADDY awards. This is a great opportunity to network and expand the scope of the ADDY awards by meeting with professionals across Central Florida and offering them a great opportunity to advertise their business to creative ad agencies here in the Orlando area.

Awards Committee

The Awards Committee develops and creates the Awards Book, posts the winners online and orders the trophies for the ‘Best of’ winners. This committee works closely with the Communications and Judging Committees to coordinate printing, mailing and emailing of promotional materials for the American Advertising Awards. This committee is also responsible for creating the Award Show Slideshow that showcases all the local winners.

Gala Committee

The Gala Committee is great for those involved with Event Planning and Management. The responsiblities of this committee include selecting the award banquet/cocktail hour venue and caterer, help develop sponsorship opportunities, select show theme, décor (centerpieces, decorations, delivery and setup) and menu. The committee will also work closely with the Communications Committee to coordinate design of invitations, along with any other show/promotional materials and coordinate printing, mailing and emailing of materials. At the Gala, the committee members can welcome guests to the American Advertising Awards and coordinate photography at the event and distribute the Awards Book.
