Call for Nominations: Silver Medal Award

The Idaho Advertising Federation is currently accepting nominations for the AAF Silver Medal Award.  The Silver Medal Award is presented “to an individual who has made outstanding contributions to advertising by furthering the industry’s standards, creative excellence, and responsibilities in areas of social concern.”

More details from the folks at the IAF:

Following receipt of nominations, the IAF Board of Directors selects a regional panel of Idaho judges to review nominees based on the criteria that follow. Only one Silver Medal is awarded each year, and judges may elect not to award the Silver Medal in any given year.

The Silver Medal winner will be announced at the annual Rockies Awards Banquet hosted by the Idaho Advertising Federation on April 24th, 2010. The recipient’s name is listed with other winners throughout the nation for presentation to the National Conference of the American Advertising Federation.
