D&AD Next is the award for junior creatives, designers and craftspeople. It’s a platform to showcase talent to creative leaders, brands and agencies. It celebrates and amplifies the industry’s emerging voices.
D&AD Next will be taking a break from the Awards this year, whilst we reevaluate the very best way D&AD can recognise and celebrate emerging professional creative talent. Following a review we recognise that we need to take time to look further at the specific needs of those moving up the career ladder and how we can continue to offer support from education to professional life.
In the past D&AD Next has offered entrants and winners access to D&AD’s on-demand courses, mentoring with a D&AD Judge, exposure at D&AD events, and the coveted D&AD Pencil.
If you are starting out in your professional career or have thoughts on what could help those that have, please get in touch and let us know!
