american advertising awards


representing advertising professionals since 1905

Since 1905, the American Advertising Federation has protected and supported the well-being of advertising as the oldest national advertising trade association in the United States. Our chapter here in Knoxville falls under AAF District 7, along with other chapters in Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, & Mississippi.

AAF is a place to network with agencies, client-side marketing professionals, media, creatives, freelancers, and others who love this industry. We’re people who make our livings in advertising and professional communications, from traditional media to TikTok, from print to digital, and from the student to the professional level.

Join AAF Knoxville

Joining AAF allows you access to premier resources, educational materials, and eligibility for the American Advertising Awards (the largest creative competition in the world), previously known as the ADDYs. We also host various events throughout the year, such as educational luncheons, networking events, and the Big Wig competition.
