TIERED PRICING

Introduced last year, The ADC Annual Awards is pleased to announce 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.

Spatial Design Awards
The ADC Spatial Design Awards includes various disciplines in relationship to manmade human environments such as architecture, landscape architecture, landscape design, interior design, service design, lighting design as well as certain areas of public art. The ADC Spatial Design Awards honor and celebrate innovation and design in environments that are aimed towards enhancing the human experience in both private and public design realms, in a growing field that defines the mutual relations between physical and social spaces.
