AAF Dallas Opens 2020 Nominations for Shining Stars


AAF Dallas is celebrating the 4TH annual Shining Stars awards program which honors top women in Dallas advertising. Shining Stars will be held at The House of Blues Music Hall on May 21, 2020. We are accepting nominations for Shining Stars through April 4th! Nominate your Shining Star for this honor by April 4th via our nomination form.

In 2017, we launched our AAF Dallas Shining Stars program to celebrate amazing women doing amazing things in Dallas advertising. Inspired after attending the Southwest Advertising Hall of Fame event, we googled “top women in Dallas advertising” and the result was “The 10 Most Beautiful Women in Dallas” instead of finding women who are producing thought-provoking and innovative work, breaking through barriers to create something new, or forging partnerships that drive growth. We believe ambition, work ethic, creativity, and leadership are qualities to celebrate and elevate. We believe when you get 25 incredible women in a room, great things happen. We believe it’s time that the nation recognizes our city as the talented advertising market that we are…and so the AAF Dallas Shining Star program lives on. In 2018, women from Southwest Airlines, PepsiCo, BBDO, The Richards Group, DREAM Fund, Spectrum Reach, The Marketing Arm and may more were recognized. 

Since launching this program, we are proud to say we've seen a shift in AAF leadership with a board make up of 65% women.
