ADDY Judge selection is made after a thorough and exhaustive evaluation process. Each year, our ADDY Chairs, committee members and industry leaders spend a countless number of hours researching the most qualified and respected candidates to judge our local ADDY submissions. Those selected are charged with the responsibility of judging the finest work of our industry created for our market across each of its diverse specialties — paying particular attention to the work as it relates to local competition.

This years judge search was no exception, our judges encompass proficiencies in multiple areas of expertise and represent some of the top agencies in the country to make the connections and understand how ideas and creativity can combine for powerful results. Also, due to a record number of entries this year, we have expanded our judging panel to four judges.
