AAPC is the proud host of the Pollie Awards, 40 Under 40 Awards, and Campaign Excellence Awards which recognize leaders, innovators and exceptional work within the political communications and public affairs industries. This year’s awards will be presented at the 2017 Pollie Awards and Conference in Huntington Beach, California, March 14-16, 2017.
2017 Pollie Awards Contest
As of Saturday, January 21st, we are experiencing connectivity issues with the Contest website and are working on a resolution. If you are attempting to submit an entry, please stand by. Please note, we will extend the Contest deadline and waive any late fees. Contact Jenn Cutri at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
The Pollie Awards are the most prized and sought-after awards in the political communications and public affairs industries. Every entry – whether submitted by a large consulting company or an individual consultant – is considered equal in competing for honors of excellence. A blind jury of professional peers selects AAPC award winners.
Esquire magazine has dubbed the Pollies “…the Oscars of political advertising.”
