ADCN Awards

ADCN Awards

Let's celebrate the power of human imagination.

Since 1966, the iconic Lamps celebrate the very best Creativity and Craft in Advertising and Design in the Netherlands. The Next Awards honour the best creative ideas in Business and Culture, the best creativity in the worlds of Innovation and Impact, as well as the best Talent and Side-Projects in the creative industries.

Legendary creatives like Dick Bruna, MediaMonks and Momkai won the Lamp in honour of their creative excellence – could you be next? The Awards highlight the very best of human imagination and are a source of new inspiration within the industry.

Getting free publicity for your work, honouring your team and maybe even winning a Lamp: sounds goods? Let’s celebrate the power of creativity together during the 2020 Creativity Awards.

Entry to the awards is now closed for all categories except the Young Directors Award. Are you a talented director with maximum 3 years experience? Enter your best commissioned project of 2019 before 29 March!

***Due to the situation concerning the coronavirus, ADCN has decided to move the Dutch Creativity Awards Show from 14 May to September 2020. As a result of this, other important dates in the calendar have also been adjusted - including the Jury sessions, the announcement of the Nominations and the Expo of the Dutch Creativity Awards.
We will announce the new date and location for the Dutch Creativity Awards Show as soon as possible and would very much appreciate the understanding of ADCN Members, Entrants, Jury Members and partners of the Dutch Creativity Awards. The Club strives to celebrate and honour Dutch creativity in September with all kinds of activities surrounding the Awards Show.***
