Art Directors Club
The Art Directors Club is a global organisation founded in 1920 by Louis Pedlar. The ADC runs Annual Awards and Young Guns competitions, honouring the best work from around the world in interactive media, broadcast and print advertising, graphic design, publication design, packaging, photography and illustration. Winners are presented with the ADC Gold and Silver Cubes at a gala ceremony each spring. In addition, the ADC Hybrid Award is awarded to the year’s most innovative, ground-breaking work and the ADC Design Sphere honors a sustained program of design by a design firm for a single client that sets the standard for excellence in design communications. All of the winners are featured in the Art Directors Annual. The ADC International Annual Awards Exhibition sends the Black, ADC Hybrid, ADC Design Sphere, Gold, Silver and Bronze work on a worldwide tour.
