NEW FOR THIS YEAR

The ADC 97th Annual Awards is please 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.

Photography

This discipline focuses on the art of film and digital photography across a myriad of specialties.

Fee Breakdown:
Freelancers: $100.00 Single / $150.00 Series
Company Size = 2-20 Employees & Individuals: $150.00 Single / $200.00 Series
Company Size = 21+ Employees: $200.00 Single / $250.00 Series
