30 Gold, 64 Silver and 133 Nominations awarded from a total of 802 entries from 23 European countries.
The 26h ADCE Awards took place during 4th European Creativity Festival, organized by Art Directors Club of Europe (ADCE) at Disseny Hub, Barcelona.
Last Saturday 11 November the 4th European Creativity Festival came to an end with the announcement of the most important recognition of the ADCE Awards. President Ami Hasan unveiled the recipient of the Grand Prix 2017: “Check it before it’s removed”, created by DDB Germany for non-profit organization Pink Ribbon Germany.
The campaign takes advantage of the social media censorship guidelines to increase awareness for breast cancer.
Social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram strictly prohibit the display of female nipples. On International Women’s Day, 17 brave women challenged these restrictions. They each bared a naked breast on Facebook and Instagram, urging all women to “Check it before it’s removed”.
In a matter of hours, Facebook and Instagram began deleting the posts. But as the pictures were removed, the buzz and awareness around the story was building in mainstream media.
The Best of Design and Advertising Awards
In total, there were 802 creative works entered into the 26th edition of the ADCE Awards. The jury was comprised of 60 leading creatives from 23 different countries.
The ADCE Awards are unique in that only creative work that has been awarded at a local European show can qualify, ensuring an elite selection in which every single entry that a judge sees has already been nominated as a standout piece of creative.
For the 26th edition, ADCE President Ami Hasan was given the honour of presiding over the awards, and he reflects on them: “We’re blessed with a magnitude of talent in Europe, and the ADCE Awards are a celebration of that talent.”
