The Board of Trustees Election

The Board of Trustees represent the creative industries, steering D&AD in its remit to inspire and nurture creativity. Paid D&AD Members are invited to vote for the professionals they would most like to represent them on the board.


You have one vote for the professional and one vote for the New Blood category. Here are the candidates.

Professional Candidates

We have a single candidate on our Board of Trustees that's chosen from our New Blood programme. Because we recognise that not every young creative can afford the membership, these candidates can be voted on by our paid and free-members. Here are the candidates.
