D&AD Awards 2019 - entries now open!

D&AD Awards 2019 are open for entry. The D&AD Awards inspire and celebrate the best in design, communications and advertising. Winning a Pencil remains the pinnacle of many careers. Nothing matters more.

What's New in 2019:

Craft Categories
This year we are launching a newly restructured craft offering with standalone craft categories, ranging from Illustration to Cinematography, Direction to Typography, that cover both design and advertising

Next Categories
Budding professionals will have the opportunity to submit their work into our newly formed Next categories. This will give emerging creatives, designers and crafts practitioners the platform to showcase their individual talents.

D&AD is one of the toughest to win, making the Pencil that much more treasured. A lot of good work nearly makes it, so for the first time ever during live judging we’ll be releasing a shortlist to spotlight the work that sparked debate.
