American Advertising Federation Chapter Offering Free ADDY Awards Workshop

The American Advertising Federation of Santa Barbara announces the ADDY Awards, the largest national advertising competition in the United States.

Local agencies, graphic artists and advertising professionals from various media, including print, radio, television and Internet, submit their best local work as part of a three-tiered competition culminating in the prestigious National ADDY Awards.

AAFSB offers local contestants a walk through and strategy guide for this year’s competition with an in-depth tutorial, hosted by Mark Landon, western region chair for the American Advertising Federation, and veteran facilitator of the ADDY Awards. Landon will discuss judging criteria, as well as provide tips to help first-time contestants successfully navigate the submission process.

The workshop, created for everyone from the smallest advertising entrepreneurs to the largest advertising agencies in the Central Coast, will review changes in ADDY software, along with new digital categories and pricing.

The 2013 Coastal California ADDY competition will open for submissions following the event.

ADDY 101 will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. next Tuesday Nov. 13 at Oreana Winery, 205 Anacapa St. in Santa Barbara. To RSVP, click here or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
