Your Next Big Story

For 57 years D&AD has stimulated and celebrated creative excellence in commercial creativity, annually inviting 250 of the world’s greatest creative practitioners to judge the year’s finest work.

Symbolising all this is the iconic D&AD Pencil.

For those who achieve one, it is career defining.

And it’s more than an award. D&AD gives back to the creative industry to make it fairer, more open and more accessible, no matter who you are or where you’re from.

That’s what makes a D&AD Pencil coveted and respected the world over.

So enter D&AD Awards 2019 for the glory, to prove that you’re making the best creative work out there, to write your next big story.

But also enter to be part of the narrative shaping the creative industry to be stronger, fairer and more open for everyone.

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.
