AAF Columbus Silver Medal Award Call for Nominations
Recognize a professional who has shaped our industry AND NOMINATE THEM FOR THE SILVER MEDAL AWARD.
The American Advertising Federation's Silver Medal Award Program was established in 1959 to recognize individuals 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 Columbus bestows this honor upon an outstanding member of the local advertising community.
The Silver Medal recipient is recognized at our local AAF Annual Meeting (to be held May 16, 2014) and honored at a ceremony later that month at the 2014 AAF National Conference (www.admericaaaf.org).
Silver Medal Award Criteria
Silver Medal recipients are selected by a panel of judges from each local chapter. Judges use the following criteria when making their selections:
- Contribution to His/Her Company - The recipient must have achieved success in one of the following areas of work: advertising agency, advertiser, media or advertising service.
- Creative Ability - The recipient must have shown a consistent, high degree of original thinking in their field.
- Contributions to the General Advancement of Advertising - The recipient must have worked to increase the stature and raise the standards of the advertising profession.
- Contributions to the Community - The recipient should be someone who has been active in civic, religious or other groups dedicated to human or social welfare.
Silver Medal nominees need not be members of AAF Columbus. Nominations can be made by employees, co-workers or acquaintances. Nominators may feel free to discuss the nomination with the nominee, and may find such discussion necessary in order to satisfactorily complete the nomination form. Separate sheets may be used.
