D&AD President's Award 2020: Yuya Furukawa

Every year, D&AD honours a true industry hero with the President’s Award. This year, the recipient is Yuya Furukawa, CCO at Dentsu Tokyo, for his outstanding contribution to creativity.

D&AD President Kate Stanners commented:

"Dear Yuya, 
For your co-leadership of one of the world's great agencies and the great work it produces, year after year. For inspiring advertising people to see themselves as creative solvers of all kinds of problems beyond just advertising. For representing the best of the Japanese advertising industry to the international community; and the international community to Japan, with dignity and passion. For your inspirational speaking and writing.
For the beautiful work of the Advertising and Design Museum of Tokyo. For your championing of young talent. For your tireless support of D&AD, its people and its programs; and your work on our International Advisory Board. For helping the advertising industry be the best it can be and do the best it can do. For representing our business in a way that makes us all proud to be part of it. I'm delighted to present you with D&AD's highest accolade, the 2020 President's Award."
On receiving the President's Award, Yuya Furukawa says:
"Looking at all the great names of the past winners, I am awestruck rather than simply happy and honoured to receive this award. It is no doubt the highest accolade I’ve received since I started working as a creative.
In the past ten years, many awards have strived to expand, adding new categories year by year. But D&AD has continued to keep its posture, pursuing exceptional quality in design and creativity, and the social power that comes with it as a result. It has been and still is the most coveted award in our industry that is difficult to win. It has also put great effort in the most important thing for our industry: young talent.
I have deep respect for D&AD: how it believes that brands can thrive, and that the world can be better place---with the power of design and creativity. Its significance will be even greater in these times we are going through right now."

For 58 years D&AD has stimulated and celebrated creative excellence in commercial creativity. The Pencil winners of D&AD Awards 2020 have now been announced. Explore the inspiring body of work in all it’s glory.
