Sponsorships are open to any and all businesses in the local area who have are involved in advertising, communications and design and are interested in supporting our local chapter. We typically receive sponsorships from media outlets, vendors and even some agencies. Your sponsorship goes directly to the American Advertising Federation of Northern Illinois, with proceeds benefiting the club and allowing for exciting, relevant programming/speakers throughout the year.
Please note that sponsorships do not, and have not ever, effected the outcome of these awards. Our judges come from outside the market place without prior knowledge of entries or entrants.
Please consider supporting the American Advertising Federation of Northern Illinois with your sponsorship and we would love to see you at the event.
