advertising professionals from markets across the U.S. who are flown into

Duluth for a weekend of pouring over submissions. On March 5, the work they

selected will be awarded Gold ADDY, Silver ADDY, Judges Row and Best of

categories," said Denise Archer, AAF Duluth/Superior president.

Submissions come from across a spectrum of businesses and non-profits,

including: advertising agencies, production houses, interactive developers,

designers, writers, photographers, illustrators and more. Students from area colleges are strongly encouraged to enter the contest.

"You don't need to be an AAF member, but if you're submitting work, it's

really the perfect time to join and save money on those entry fees," Archer

said. "Of course, entry fees for students are only a fraction of the member

and non-member cost. So students who want to pursue a career in the industry would be wise to check this out."

The AAF Duluth/Superior is composed of 115+ local advertising professionals.

AAF works to enhance the professional development of club members while

increasing recognition for the advertising industry and giving back to the

community. AAF is a local affiliate of the American Advertising Federation,
