2017 Silver Medalist Nomination

The American Advertising Federation’s Silver Medal Award Program was established in 1959 to recognize men and women who have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering the industry’s standards, creative excellence and responsibility in areas of social concern. Annually, AAF member clubs bestow this honor upon an outstanding member of their community.

For many local clubs, awarding the AAF Silver Medal is the highlight of their year. It enhances the image of advertising by recognizing a locally well-known person for their advertising and community involvement.

Use the form below to tell us about your Silver Medal Nominee.  Judges will evaluate your candidate, and if he/she is selected, we will ask you to help prepare a “tribute”  to your candidate.  Typically a video, your tribute will be presented at the Silver Medal Award Ceremony on April 13, 2017.
