NEW FOR THIS YEAR

The ADC 97th Annual Awards is pleased to introduce a tiered fee system specifically for freelancers, individuals and small companies. We believe that impeccable craft and design comes from all corners of the industry, from the gleaming agencies working their magic on global clients; to the design boutiques developing a new logo for an up and coming brand; to the lone illustrator or photographer breathing life to a magazine editorial. It is our hope that our new pricing will encourage entries from across the creative spectrum.

Brand / Communication Design

The ADC Annual Awards has a near-century long history of championing breathtaking design work. The Brand / Communication Design discipline focuses on many traditional aspects of the graphic design world, from logos and corporate branding to posters and other promotional materials.
