AAF Memphis American Advertising Awards

Every year, AAF Memphis puts out a call for entries to local advertising/marketing professionals to enter their most inventive, inspiring and ingenious creative work of the year. These entries are judged by a panel of visiting creative professionals, with the winners receiving gold and silver trophies in a variety of categories. The best entries also are eligible to receive overall honors in Best of Categories, including Best of Show and Best of Print, etc. Each year the trophies are presented to the winners at our biggest event of the year.


Our winning entries are eligible to be forwarded on to compete again at the District 7 American Advertising Awards and if they win there, they can compete at the National level against the best creative in the country.

Silver Medal Award

Each year, previous recipients of the Silver Medal Award select an individual who has made outstanding contributions to Memphis advertising and who has been active in furthering industry standards over the course of his or her lifetime.
