To be eligible for consideration of an ADDY, all work must have been published or broadcast between Jan. 1, 2001 and Dec. 31, 2001.
A panel of advertising executives will gather at Kendall College of Art & Design the weekend of Jan. 12, 2002, to select the winners from the approximately 500 entries that are anticipated. The Ad Club of West Michigan ADDY Award winners will be honored at a dinner presentation on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2002 at the Cultural Center at St. Nicholas in Grand Rapids.
