From 26.10.2020 to 12.03.2021 CompetitionUnited States
The ADC Annual Awards, part of The One Club for Creativity, is the oldest continuously running industry award show in the world. Now heading into its incredible 100th year, these Awards celebrate the very best in advertising, digital media, graphic and publication design, packaging and product design, motion, experiential and spatial design, photography, illustration, and fashion design all with a focus on artistry and craftsmanship.
The ADC Annual Awards also offers a tiered pricing structure designed to make it easier for smaller agencies, studios, and freelancers to participate. Larger companies pay the standard entry fee; smaller shops get a discount on entries (amount varies by discipline) and freelance creatives and one-person shops are eligible for an even greater reduction in their entry fee.
Outstanding entrants are selected by highly respected juries and honored with coveted Gold, Silver and Bronze Cubes, presented at the Annual Awards Gala. Beyond these Cubes, however, ADC Annual Awards winners join a rich legacy of past honorees that include some of the most influential artists of the past century.
The ADC Annual Awards are pleased to offer a tiered fee system specifically for freelancers, individuals and small companies. We believe that impeccable craft and design comes from all corners of the industry, from the gleaming agencies working their magic on global clients; to the design, boutiques developing a new logo for an up-and-coming brand; to the lone illustrator or photographer breathing life to a magazine editorial. It is our hope that this pricing will encourage entries from across the creative spectrum. The ADC 100 will begin accepting entries on 09 November 2020.
All entries must have been printed, published, or aired for the first time between the dates listed below in any country. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the entry period has been extended. Eligibility Dates: January 1, 2019 – March 26, 2021
