D&AD Impact matters. “D&AD Impact seeks to identify and celebrate great, transformative, creative ideas that have had real impact and, ultimately, contribute towards a better, fairer and more sustainable future for all.”
Impact was launched last year by D&AD and Advertising Week. Its 60+ judges handed out 87 black, white, graphite and wood Pencils to products, campaigns and initiatives that made the world better.
Two black Pencils were awarded to:
- Grey Canada for Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (MDA)
- Marcel Paris for Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables for Intermarché .
