In partnership with D&AD

Since 1962, D&AD has been inspiring a community of creative thinkers by celebrating and stimulating the finest in design and advertising. A D&AD Award is recognized globally as the ultimate creative accolade, entered and attended by the best creative decision makers from around the world. Set to reward, promote and enable creative brilliance in all areas of creative communication, a Yellow – or Black – Pencil remains the pinnacle in many careers. But it’s much more than just the Awards. Members join a vibrant global community, whilst creatives and clients are inspired by a world-class training and development program. Students are supported with projects, awards and exhibitions, which give them a vital leg-up as they enter the industry. As a non-profit, all of D&AD’s surpluses go straight into programs that develop the next generation of creative talent while campaigning for the creative industries to help solve the world’s toughest social and environmental issues.
