the angel awards for excellence in public service advertising

Angel Beaity Shot.png

Honoring the very best in public service advertising

 

Conducted by the American Advertising Federation District 4, the Angel Awards competition combines two missions of the organization: to utilize industry expertise to address community issues, and to celebrate and honor advertising excellence.

 

Entry is open to all advertising service providers, public service organizations, and special interest causes and groups located in Florida and the Caribbean. No organization membership is required.

2023 Entries are closed.

One Entry Has Multiple

Award Opportunities

The Angel Award competition features a unique entry format that eliminates the need to enter in numerous categories. This dramatically simplified structure means that you enter an entire campaign just once. The primary Angel Awards reward the campaign results and execution rather than artistic or creative concepts. But all of the individual creative elements are also in consideration for award recognition, so a single campaign entry may be awarded multiple Angels. Alternately, you may enter just a single piece of work to be judged on creative merit.

Award Selection

Single creative

element awards

will be selected from all entries. For example: Logos, Print, Radio, TV, Websites, etc. entered as part of the complete campaign, single medium campaign, or single entry may win individually. A panel of expert judges representing all advertising disciplines will make the award decisions. Work worthy of recognition will receive a Silver Angel Award and those representing the highest standards will receive a Gold Angel Award.

Award-Winning Work

will receive two Gold or Silver certificates: one for the entrant organization and one for the client. It will feature the credits for those who created the work. Winners will also have the opportunity to purchase the Angel trophy. The award-winning work will be honored at a dinner event at the November AAF District 4 conference and presented in a video reel and an online album on the district's social media channels.

Best of Show
