LOOKING FOR THE BEST THE 2019 ADCC STUDENT COMPETITION

As always, we are setting out to recognize and award the absolute best student work.
Rather than providing a brief for a specific brand or product, we’re looking for the best work from your portfolio. It’s that piece that you’re most proud of. The piece that represents what you’re capable of – the one that truly showcases your talent. So send us your best and prepare to be judged by the best.

You should submit your strongest work, along with a brief rationale (50 words or less), so our judges can understand any unique context.
DEADLINE Entries must be submitted online by 12pm on Friday, May 17, 2019.

WINNING AN ADCC STUDENT AWARD

What does winning mean?

Earning an ADCC award is the perfect way to launch your career. Your piece will be featured in both the 2019 Annual and at the ADCC Awards gala itself, alongside work belonging to the industry’s top professionals. You’ll also be able to cement your place in history on the ADCC Archive, which stretches back 70 years.
What are the prizes?

There are three Advertising & Design Club of Canada award categories; Gold, Silver and Bronze. Winning entries in each of these categories will receive the applicable ADCC certificate.

Judges will award up to 2 Gold award winners; one from the work submitted to the Advertising and Interactive categories, the other from work submitted to the Graphic Design and Editorial & Book Design categories. Gold award winners will also receive a cash prize of $1,000 and a four-month mentorship. Silver award winners will receive a cash prize of $150.

Please note: In cases where an award winning entry is submitted by a team, the prizes are shared between team members

Prizes are provided by The Advertising & Design Club of Canada.
