Central Minnesota is home to a cast of amazingly talented marketers. And you don’t just have to take our word for it. I’m sure you can think of those people in your professional life who radiate excellence in our industry. Sub- missions are due Friday, January 27th!
Silver Medal Award
This is precisely why the American Advertising Federation presents the Silver Medal Award and Emerging Leader Award each year. We think those that have gone above and beyond deserve to be recognized in front of their industry peers.
The AAF 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 further the industry’s standards, creative excellence, and responsibility in areas of social concern. Each year, AAFCM bestows this honor upon an outstanding member of the central Minnesota advertising community.
If you wish to nominate someone for the Silver Medal Award Program, you may submit your application here. Our panel of judges is comprised of past club presidents and Silver Medal Award winners. The recipient of the award will be announced at the 2023 American Advertising Awards.
Emerging Leader Award
The AAFCM Emerging Leader Award was established in 2017. This award was created to recognize young professionals who are making outstanding contributions to marketing, advertising, design, and/or communications.
Emerging Leaders, while young in their careers, have already shown themselves to making an impact. They are individuals who have begun to further industry standards, creative excellence, and responsibility in areas of social concern.
Emerging Leader nominees must be under the age of 35 (as of the end of this year), and contribute to the industry in the Central MN community. Sound like someone you know? You can submit your Emerging Leader application here. One will be announced at the 2023 American Advertising Awards.
