About D&AD Professional Awards

The D&AD Professional Awards recognise and celebrate creative excellence in advertising and design.

Entered work is judged by our esteemed panel of top creative professionals from around the world and could be displayed in the D&AD Festival exhibition in London, 26-27 April.

Winning a Pencil remains the pinnacle of many careers and the work it celebrates inspires others to study, debate, copy and reference its excellence as the industry's finest and most historic treasures. This year’s Pencil winners will be announced at the spectacular D&AD Awards Ceremony, the finale event of D&AD Festival on 27 April.
