The ADC, based in New York, is an international not-for-profit organization of leading creatives in advertising, graphic design, interactive media, broadcast design, typography, packaging, environmental design, photography, illustration, and related disciplines. Each year the Annual Awards Competition conducts four phases of judging: Advertising, Graphic Design, Interactive Media, and the new Multi-Channel category, representing integrated media design.
This year, 26 Golds and 49 Silvers will be awarded from the nearly 12,000 entries submitted in the 83rd Annual Awards. Approximately one-third of the total entries received were from outside the US.
The Art Directors Annual celebrates visual fuel, and this year the 83rd will publish 433 award winning pieces from the competition. The oldest and most respected publication of its kind, the Annual presents over 1,000 images in full-color with credit captions, scripts, statements, and a comprehensive index-- nothing less than the year¹s most innovative creative work, worldwide.
