A Tribute to Lord Snowdon

On Friday 13 January 2017 we were saddened to hear about the death of Lord Snowdon. Not only was he a celebrated photographer and one-time husband to Princess Margaret, his connection to D&AD goes right back to our beginnings.

Lord Snowdon was D&AD President in 1980 and was the first photographer to take on the role. He first worked with D&AD in 1963 when he opened the first ever D&AD Awards show and again in 1967 when we took an exhibition of British creativity to New York. He was also the recipient of many awards throughout his career, including a Yellow Pencil in 1978.

In tribute to him we have republished his foreword from the 1980 D&AD Annual. Despite being written over 35 years ago, his words are as relevant today as they were back then.
