ADC 99th Annual Awards Winners Announced!

After a full week of ADC Cube winner announcements and interviews with creative leaders on Instagram Live, we are proud to unveil the ADC 99th Annual Awards winners honoring the very best in craftsmanship, beauty and attention to detail in the worlds of design, advertising and other creative disciplines. The highly coveted ADC Black Cube, representing Best of Show, was awarded to Apple's "Bounce" created by TBWA\Media Arts Lab, Pulse Films and Framestore.

New for 2020, the Freelancer of the Year Award was created in partnership with Working Not Working in order to celebrate self-employed creatives and small studios. All of the top-scoring freelance submissions were judged both on the strength of the entries, as well as on the stories of each person's professional creative journey. Freelancer of the Year was awarded to Illustrator Kadir Nelson

Congratulations to all of our winners and a big thank you to the creative community for all of your support! See the Winners!
