AAB Showcase Awards








Judged by 1,000s of Creatives and Clients nationwide.



Enter Work

The best work you’ve never seen.

Thousands of votes are received from members of the marketing, advertising, design and digital industries in the U.S.

As a judge, you get to review some of the best creative work you have never seen.

Why haven't you seen it? Because their is a lot of great work which never gets entered, either because of timing contraints or cost.

AAB offers free entry for all agencies in our creative community, and we create all entry documents – each agency only needs to approve their proof.

Our goal:

Get the best work seen.

Our judges are like you – agency and marketing professionals who are immersed in advertising every day, and instinctively know what is new, innovative, creative and strong.

Importantly, our judges include prospective clients, brand managers and CMOs. These judges know the creative which works for their customers, and they are looking for the next agency to propel their brand to greater heights.

They just need to find that connection.

Agencies, Clients, Photographers, Illustrators, Web Designers, Judges. Everyone wins.

Creatives and clients discover new sources for solutions, and get exposed to previously unseen creative. Photographers, illustrators and web designers get exposure for their work. Judges compete for the best judging record. A perfect symbiotic relationship.

That's the way creative awards should be.

American Ad Books (AAB) and the AAB Showcase Awards

AAB publishes source books for marketing managers.

The AAB Showcase Awards introduce these managers to new advertising agencies and new creative resources, while celebrating agency creatives for outstanding creative work.

1-to-1 Connection

If you have never heard of American Ad Books or the AAB Showcase Awards, that's because all of our communication is done 1-to-1, not through media campaigns.

This keeps the costs low, and provides our judges and competitors with more personal attention.

AAB guarantees that the right people see your work, read your case study or profile, and have direct access to your contact information – because they are our judges.
