THE AAF SILVER MEDAL AWARD
Each year members of the advertising profession select one of our own for the highest recognition that we can give. The American Advertising Federation Silver Medal is not for a singular act, or even a great year or two. It is awarded only to those who in their lifetimes have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering industry standards. The Memphis chapter has recognized remarkable lifetime achievements annually since 1960.
