Selection of the most creative entries is conducted through a scoring process in which a panel of judges—comprised of accomplished advertising creative professionals—evaluates all creative dimensions of every entry. The number of awards given in each category is determined by the judges, based on the relative quality of work in that category.
Occurring in conjunction with the professional competition of The Show, Student Awards recognize and reward creative excellence by students. Information on entering the American Advertising Awards Student Division may be found at AmericanAdvertisingAwards.com.
