TIERED PRICING

Last year, The ADC Annual Awards was 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.

Typography

This discipline focuses on the creation and application of letterforms, including typefaces, calligraphy and hand-lettering.

NEW FOR TYPOGRAPHY

The ADC 97th Annual Awards has introduced a Personal/Unpublished category, allowing letterers to submit work created without a client in mind, but rather for personal experimentation.
