The entries range from television commercials, social media campaigns, stadium signage, promotional collateral, and more!
 
Our office will soon begin to fill up with hundreds of these great sports advertisements that your organizations have done this past year. Below are some of the entries from our 2016 winners in each of the eight (8) categories (Television, Social/Mobile Media, Print, Out-of-Home, Alternative Media, Sales Collateral, In-Stadium/In-Arena, Internet/Web-Based).

ADchievement Awards

PROGRAM TITLE

Preview of the 2017 NSF ADchievement Awards

OBJECTIVES

To showcase the best sports-themed advertising campaigns of 2016.
 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Early Bird Discount
Entering its 14th year, the 2017 NSF ADchievement Awards will be presented on February 14, 2017, at the National Sports Forum in Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN. This is your chance to pit your organization's advertising against the best and most effective in the sports industry - giving you the potential to "take a bow" in front of the entire industry, and be recognized as the leader in our business!

The NSF ADchievement Awards highlight the year's best sports-themed advertising campaigns in North America. Campaigns can be submitted in any of the eight categories below. Finalists and winners in each category will be determined by a preliminary judging panel consisting of independent advertising experts.

In addition to the eight categories, the prestigious NSF ADchievement Overall Award of Excellence will be presented to the sports property with the best cumulative advertising. The judges will determine the winner prior to the conference using the total score of each organization's top six individual categories. A representative from the organization that wins the Overall Award of Excellence will receive the award live, in front of the entire industry at the 2017 National Sports Forum! The more categories you enter, the better chance you'll have at receiving the Overall Award of Excellence.
