Side Hustle Jury

  • D&AD Awards 2022

Passion projects run by individuals or teams alongside their main job.

Side Hustles must be ‘independently owned’, i.e. substantially owned by its founders and not commissioned, owned or funded by an employer.

A Side Hustle cannot be the entrant’s Main Hustle.

Shortlisted entrants must be available to present their idea to a panel of judges as part of a virtual Pitch Day on 12 May. As part of your prize, you will be invited to a Masterclass with Tom Evans on 5 May, entitled 'Presenting Creative Work'. Attending the class is not mandatory, however it is strongly recommended in order to prepare for Pitch Day. For more information please click here.
