Now that you’ve heard about the American Advertising Awards, you might be wondering if it’s worth it to submit your project (spoiler alert, of course it is!) If you still need convincing, check out the top five reasons to enter below:
5. Business is all about relationships
We all know that when working with clients and customers, strong, trusting relationships are key to repeat business and referrals for new business. The American Advertising Awards is the perfect place to showcase your work on behalf of your customers. They say actions speak louder than words, and submitting the pieces you’ve done for clients screams, “HEY! Look who we get to work with, and would you look at what we get to do for them!?”
4. Because self-promotion isn’t selfish
Business is, well, business, and when we get down to it, it’s easy to get caught up in the grind of promoting products and services, taking care of clients, and generally hustling that we forget to do all the same promotion and hustle for ourselves! The American Advertising Awards are the perfect place to remind your colleagues in the industry of who you are and what you do.
3. Your entry supports local students
Proceeds from our show are used to support all the feel-good things our club does for local students (i.e. the future of our industry), like our annual Student Design Competition.
2. Helping Us Helps You
Part of our mission as a club is to provide programming and workshops throughout the year that help you grow and flourish as a professional! Your entry helps us help you!
1. The work!
You #grind day in and day out; honestly, the work speaks for itself. You’ve put in the hustle and heart; now it’s time to step aside and make way for the work. It deserves to be recognized!
