“Craft and innovation continue to be the intense focus of the ADC Annual Awards,” stated Michael O’Rourke, executive director, ADC.
“This year’s jury chairs are recognised creative leaders who are perfectly suited to lead our juries and guide them to view the work through that lens during the judging process.”
This year’s competition continues to offer tiered pricing structure , designed to make it easier for smaller studios, agencies and freelancers to participate in the ADC Annual Awards.
The fee structure varies depending on whether the submitting firm is a design studio or ad agency. Design studios with between 2-20 employees get a discount (amount varies by discipline), while ad agencies with between 2-50 employees qualify for the tiered pricing discount. Freelance creatives and one-person shops in either design or advertising are eligible for an even greater reduction in their entry fee.
