Lifetime Achievement Award

The Lifetime Achievement Award, formerly the Pioneer Award, was established to recognize men and women who have made outstanding contributions to the advertising industry and who have been active in furthering the industry’s standards, creative excellence and responsibility in areas of social concern. The Lifetime Achievement Award is the highest award that can be given by AAF Dothan. The Lifetime Achievement Award recipients are selected by a committee of local AAF members. A few of the past recipients include Norma Hanson, Janie Hinson, Earl Durden, Bill Shealy, and Bill Moody.

HOW WE CHOOSE

The Lifetime Achievement Award committee chooses recipient from the nominations based on the following criteria:

  • Contribution to their company. The recipient must have successfully led an ad agency, advertiser, media outlet or advertising service in the Dothan area.
  • Creative ability. No matter which discipline they’re in, the recipient must have worked to raise standards in the advertising profession.
  • Contribution to the advancement of advertising. The recipient must have worked to increase the stature and raise the standards of the advertising profession.
  • Contribution to the community. The recipient should be actively involved as someone who gives back to the community.
