Q&A on What it Takes to Win an ADDY

Learn about the American Advertising Awards judging process from one of the AAF's most knowledgable and experienced members.

Those Judges don't know good creative if it bit them in the butt. We should’ve won an ADDY.

Here’s your chance to learn from an awards competition judge about what he looks for when choosing winners, the mistakes entrants make that hurt their chances, and the secrets that can make your entry stand out during the judging process. Ask him anything you want. Bring work and ask for feedback. Yell at him. Well … maybe don’t yell at him. If you’ve ever wondered what goes through a judge’s head during the judging process, this is your chance.
