D&AD Awards recognise beautiful ideas, brilliantly executed. Coveted the world over, a D&AD Pencil is the pinnacle of many creative careers.
But it's more than an award; a D&AD Pencil is recognition of the power of craft and creativity. Earning one is proof, not just that you're making the best creative work out there, but that you're committed to bettering the industry you work in.
As a not-for-profit, D&AD re-invests all surpluses back into the community we serve, helping new talent prosper and campaigning for a fairer, more diverse, more sustainable industry.
Enter not just for a chance at the glory, but to contribute to D&AD’s mission to stimulate the creative world to be stronger, fairer and more open for everyone.
