The ADC 102nd Annual Awards

The ADC Annual Awards, celebrating 102 years of excellence in design and craft, is now open for entries! This iconic award show honors the best creative talent and groundbreaking work across many different creative disciplines.

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 102nd year, these awards celebrate the very best in advertising, digital media, graphic and publication design, packaging and product design, motion, gaming, experiential and architecture, 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.

Established nearly a century ago by the legendary Art Directors Club, the ADC Annual Awards are part of The One Club for Creativity, the world’s foremost non-profit organization celebrating creative excellence.
