52nd Annual American Advertising Awards

Master Craftsmen

Webster defines craft as 1: skill in planning, making or executing 2: an occupation or trade requiring manual dexterity or artistic skill. And even though there’s a whole lot of technology and data involved in our business these days, there’s still plenty of craft. This year, AAF-COS is celebrating that craft. This year’s theme was selected to honor the heart, soul, passion, and craft of Colorado Springs advertising; and to dovetail with all the new and exciting craft ventures happening in our community. Throughout the year, the AAF Board and Addy Committee hope to partner with craft companies in The Springs to keep our theme alive and on your mind. So if you have a fun idea, let us know.
