How to Enter

Step 1

Step 2
To submit entries, you must register for an account. Click here to register & submit entries. Please, only one account per entrant. Sign in and follow the steps online to enter each of your entries.

Step 3
For each entry, print off two copies of the entry form. At the bottom of the entry form are four labels. Attach the labels to two copies of your entry, with a label on each piece (if it has more than one piece).

Step 4
Every year we create an ADDY reel of the ADDY winners. In order to show an example of your work in the presentation, It is now required that you upload the following file types depending on the type of entry you are submitting. Audio/Visual entries only need to upload the entry file for judging. We will pull the same file to use in our presentation and reel. More information can be found under the instructions for step 5.

  • Print Files: Provide in PDF or JPEG format
  • Interactive Files: Provide a JPEG of website/app/etc.

** NOTE: This is just for the presentation. You must follow the file type recommended for submission for your regular ADDY entries.

Step 5 - Steps to assemble your entry envelope. Download our easy how-to guide.
