Art Directors Club of Europe
The gateway to Europe's creative community

ADCE was created in 1990 by a group of professional design and advertising associations from around Europe. Owned and managed by its members, its mission has always been to foster and reward excellence and to showcase the diversity of European creativity. ADCE helps us speak European by enabling us to value Europe’s diverse cultures, simultaneously favouring and benefiting national clubs around Europe.

ADCE represents the best of local European advertising and design in an increasingly globalised market. We passionately believe that only if we are a diverse, connected and collaborative European creative community can we solve complex problems.

Internationally recognised as an authoritative voice, ADCE is the platform for the creative community to unite, interact, foster, explore, promote and celebrate creativity as a multi-solution approach. ADCE brings creatives together in Europe and beyond through its annual awards, events, educational programmes and publications.
