How to submit
1

Registration must be done online at adce.submit.to

Each entry form will be assigned an Entry ID number (automatically generated by the system). You can fill in the online entry form and make any changes you consider necessary up to the final registration deadline on the 14th of October 2022. No modification will be allowed after that date.

Works can only be entered once for each award received locally. The work must be entered in the category where it was locally awarded when possible. In case the ADCE categories do not match the local categories, the work should be entered in the closest fit possible.

2

All necessary images, video or sound files for the submitted works must be uploaded to the online entry platform.

Depending on the category (see Formats), entries may only be required to upload digital material to the online entry platform, while in some cases (i.e. Design) printed samples of works will also be required for Judging Day and must be sent to Barcelona by post. These must be labelled with the corresponding Entry ID number, and include an attached printed copy of the entry form (look for the PRINT icon on the online platform).

3

Works submitted for judging in more than one category must be individually entered in each category.

Note

Entry forms and work descriptions must be clear and correctly spelled in English, as this information will come from the form and used for promotional purposes (annual, exhibition, etc.).
