Judged by an international panel of the world’s most respected creative professionals, the ADC Annual Awards competition honors the best work from around the world in interactive media, broadcast and print advertising, graphic design, publication design, packaging, photography and illustration.

Winners are presented with the ADC’s coveted Gold and Silver Cubes at a ceremony each spring. The ADC Annual app for iPad offers an immersive experience to showcase the award-winning work, including a “Behind The Gold” option, which reveals bonus content such as exclusive interviews with creative directors, original storyboards and components from the “making of” campaigns, among other features.

The digital annual brings to the future the award-winning ADC Annual, the oldest and most respected compendium of outstanding work in the industry, whose pages have been graced by the work of such legendary figures as Saul Bass, Roy Grace, Helmut Krone and Bill Bernbach. The ADC Annual app is an indispensable reference tool and source of creative inspiration — or visual fuel — for creatives, clients and students alike.

On the heels of the awards ceremony, ADC sends the Gold, Silver and Bronze work on a worldwide tour — from New York to São Paulo, Wiesbaden to Beijing, and scores of venues in between — in ADC’s International Annual Awards Exhibition.
