D&AD organizers prolonged the entry deadline to this year’s edition of the awards with one extra week, until February 25th. Still, the entries submitted after February 18th will be subject to a 20% surcharge to cover additional resources needed to process late entries during the extension period. The submission of works can be done here.

D&AD Judging Week will take place in the new location of The Old Truman Brewery, East London’s revolutionary arts and creative quarter. Held Sunday 19 April – Thursday 23 April, D&AD will be opening up Judging Week to the public for the first time, with an exhibition of winning work headlining a full programme of fringe events.

Eric Kallman, Rei Inamoto, Harriet Devoy and Kai-lu Hsiung are among the leading creatives judging this year’s Awards.

This year’s Awards Ceremony will be held on May 21st and, until the end of month, the tickets are available to purchase from the D&AD Shop
