The most prestigious award of the evening is the Silver Medal Award which recognizes men and women who have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering the industry's standards, creative excellence and responsibility in areas of social concern. Nominations are reviewed by a committee of three previous Silver Medal Award winners and the Silver Medal Award is presented during the ADDY award ceremony.
