This award season we’re celebrating the 53rd annual Nashville American Advertising Awards (on Saturday, March 3, 2018) at a new venue: The Karl Dean Ballroom at Music City Center in Nashville!

The American Advertising Awards are the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting over 40,000 entries every year in local competitions.

Concurrently, all across the country, local entrants vie for recognition as the very best in their markets. At the second tier, local winners compete against other winners from cities in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and other cities in Tennessee, which is one of 14 District competitions.
