About D&AD
Since 1962, D&AD has been inspiring a community of creative thinkers by celebrating and stimulating the finest in design and advertising. A D&AD Award is recognised globally as the ultimate creative accolade, entered and attended by the best from around the world.

But it's much more than just awards. Members join a vibrant global community, whilst creatives and clients are inspired by a world-class Training programme.

As a non-profit, all of D&AD's surpluses go straight into programmes such as New Blood, that inspire the next generation of creative talent and stimulate the creative industry to work towards a fairer more sustainable future.

Winning a D&AD New Blood Award puts people under 24 on the path to the brightest of creative futures. Budding film directors and photographers also get the opportunity to be recognised with a D&AD Pencil and have their talent promoted back to the industry - in the Next Awards.
