About the South Dakota Advertising Federation

The South Dakota Advertising Federation looks to bring together a wide-variety of marketing and advertising professionals. We may give you the shot of creativity you’ve been wanting.

That means networking. Monthly luncheon programs featuring nationally renowned creatives and industry professionals. We get attention from all over, and we’re committed to making sure you’re in on the goods.

In addition:

  • SDAF hosts the statewide South Dakota Advertising Awards, the ADDYS, to recognize the best of the best.
  • SDAF aids local causes through special events throughout the year.
  • SDAF is an advocate for students breaking into the business, including scholarships, the Student ADDY awards, an online internship directory and our annual Student Day.

Our Mission

Our mission is to serve as a unified voice for sales, marketing and business professionals through award winning programs, the South Dakota ADDY Awards, educational opportunities including Student Day and a student advertising competition, and public service projects, while acting as a connecting point to the 8th District of the American Advertising Federation and the American Advertising Federation (AAF).
