Judges of the 2018 ADDY Awards

Judging Weekend Was a Success!

During ADDY judging weekend, four judges from across the nation flew into Houston to judge the 2018 ADDY entries. We thank Ryan Carpenter, Amy Jahnke, Massimo Martinotti, and Victor Parades for their patience and enthusiasm during this intricate process. We surpassed our numerical goal of entry submissions this year thanks to all of you who had entered. The judges were impressed! 
   "The quality of the work we had the privilege to judge shows, once again, how vibrant and creative the industry is in the region," stated Massimo Martinotti of StarFire Effect.
We sure couldn't do it all without the help of our members, and we're happy to say, everybody enjoyed the opportunity of working together.
“AAF-H did an excellent job of preparing for the weekend, and delivered an incredible level of’s clear that advertising is alive and kicking in Houston," stated Ryan Carpenter, McGuffin Creative Group.
A special thanks to volunteers from Ad 2 and AAF-UH, and also Skyline Houston for providing an entertaining venue. We are excited to announce the 2018 winners at the 56th American Advertising Awards Gala coming up next Saturday,
