ADCE Awards 2016. The Champions League of Creativity.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the ADCE Awards. Since the first edition in 1991, the ADCE Awards has been annually recognising the best in local design and advertising, gauging them against each other, and selecting from those, the most outstanding works for that year; a challenging task when you consider over 50,000 works are entered into local competitions and only one can win the ADCE Grand Prix!
Twenty five years later, we are proud that the ADCE Awards has become the most prestigious club competition in Europe.
Winners of ADCE affiliated national clubs responsible for their respective country’s premier award competition are eligible to participate under the following advantageous conditions:
· Gold Award winners from the national competitions participate for free.
· Silver, Bronze and Shortlist winners, are also eligible to enter at special prices.
The Art Directors Club of Europe welcomes the participation of winners from non-member European national associations responsible for the country’s premier competitions.
National Gold, Silver, and Bronze, as well as other awarded works, are eligible to participate at the ADCE Awards.
The ADCE fosters and promotes clubs across Europe and showcases the best work from each national market together with the ADCE 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 ADCE 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 can compete.
