Art Directors Club of Europe
The ADCE Awards
Best of European Design and Advertising

Welcome to the 24th Best of European Design and Advertising ADCE Awards.


The Art Directors Club of Europe (ADCE) is a non-for-profit association headquartered in Barcelona comprising professional clubs and associations of graphic design and advertising from 20 European countries. Founded in 1990, the ADCE strives to foster excellence in graphic design and advertising creativity at a European scale. Through its international network, the association represents 4.682 professionals from the field and internationally spotlights the best works accomplished at a local scale organizing the ADCE Awards - Best of European Design and Advertising.

The ADCE Awards is the only awards scheme in the world to bring European award-winning works together to sit side by side and be judged by a panel of prestigious international top creatives. The event unites, excites and inspires European creativity and acts as a gateway to its respective communities.

The ADCE’s challenge is to compare year-by-year national Gold, Silver and other awarded works, (included in local clubs’ annuals) to set the benchmark for excellence in creativity across Europe. From all registered entries, the ADCE Awards’ international jury grants a Grand Prix, and for each category: Gold, Silver and Nominations.
Eligibilty
ADCE Members

ADC*E member clubs responsible for their respective country’s premier award competition are eligible to participate. Gold Award winners from the national competitions participate for free in the Art Directors Club of Europe Awards. Silver and Bronze Award winners, as well as other awarded works published in the national annual of an ADC*E member club, may enter for a small fee (see Prices). 


ADCE Non-Members

The Art Directors Club of Europe welcomes the participation of non-member European countries, allowing their national winners (Gold, Silver, Bronze), as well as other awarded works published in their national annuals, to compete at the ADCE Awards (see Prices). 


Notes 

The ADC*E fosters and promotes clubs across Europe and showcases the best work from each national market together with the ADC*E winners in the “Annual of Annuals”. 

Because some national member clubs now include international sections in their award’s schemes, please note that: work cannot be submitted when it has not been produced and published for the market where it was awarded. 

The ADC*E will not accept winners of international sections that do not meet this condition.

Young & Students

Please note that for the “European Student of the Year” and “Young European Creative” competitions, the eligible works are only the Gold winner of every national competition. Each work is submitted to the European awards by each national member club. Therefore, only one candidate by country in each category is competing.
