The 2013 AAF-Kansas City ADDY® Awards (25 pages)
special awards • mosaic addy award
The NAC recommends that local and district shows not allow work entered in the Industry Self-Promotion or Public
Service Categories to be eligible for Best of Show consideration. The NAC suggests the creation of local, district
and national Public Service Special Judges Award.
The NAC has revised the suggested method for selection of best copywriting and best art direction in the show. The
NAC suggests that local and district shows charge their judges to select the best art direction from all Gold ADDY
winning entries in the show. These pieces may receive special judges awards or Gold ADDYs as such.
Mosaic ADDY Award
The National ADDY Committee is committed to recognizing advertising which promotes diversity and issues related
to multiculturalism. At the national ADDY level, all Gold and Silver winning pieces will be screened for relevance to
these issues. The most exceptional piece(s) will be eligible for selection by judges to receive a special Mosaic
ADDY. The NAC strongly encourages local and district ADDY shows to adopt this policy.
Special Awards, such as Public Service, Mosaic and art direction do NOT have to be Gold or Silver ADDY winners
to be considered.
