TIERED PRICING ELIGIBILITY

The ADC Annual Awards are pleased to offer 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 this pricing will encourage entries from across the creative spectrum.
