University of Louisiana at Monroe students will be well represented at this year’s renowned ADDY Awards program on Thursday, March 2. The doors of the West Monroe Convention Center will open at 5:30 p.m.; the awards banquet begins at 7 p.m.
ULM students, ranging from such diverse majors as business administration and arts and sciences, have submitted a total of 20 student entries in the AAF (American Advertising Federation) Student ADDY Awards Competition section.
According to the AAF, the not-for-profit industry association that administers the ADDY Awards via 200 member advertising clubs and 15 districts, this student competition is designed especially for college students. This category allows work entered at a local level to advance up to regional and national judging, just like the work entered by professionals across the U.S.
As stated on the AAF website, “The ADDY Awards represent the true spirit of creative excellence by recognizing all forms of advertising from media of all types.”
The banquet, sponsored by the Ad Club of Northeast Louisiana, has over 270 total entries, primarily from local advertising agencies.
