Designism Cube

Designism awards work that not only meets peerless creative standards, but also encourages positive societal and political change. The top scoring Gold Cube winning entrants across all Design for Good categories — as selected by their respective juries — will be brought together to be judged across all juries as a whole. The best entry will be awarded the ADC Designism Cube.

Fusion Cube

The Fusion Cube recognizes work that demonstrates that issues of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, in any way those might manifest in the specific market for which the work is made, have been seriously considered, addressed, and implemented in the work. It will be awarded to work that both meets ADC's standards for craft and innovation, as well as incorporates underrepresented groups — women and other marginalized genders, racial or ethnic groups, LGBTQ+, and people with cognitive or physical differences — into both the content of the work and makeup of the team who created it.

Freelancer of the year

This year in partnership with Working Not Working, all ADC 100th Annual Awards Gold Cube-winning entries submitted through the freelance level of the show’s tiered pricing structure will be judged again by a separate jury that includes the WNW community. This jury will determine the top entrant, who will receive this honor during the ADC 100th Annual Awards.
