“For the past century, the ADC Cube has been awarded for the world’s best work based on excellence in craft, design, and innovation,“ said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club for Creativity. “This strong tradition continues today in the hands of this year’s jury members, who are recognized creative leaders in their fields.”
Entries can be submitted now, with fees increasing after each deadline period. The regular deadline is March 12, 2021, with an extended deadline is March 19, 2021, and a final deadline of March 26, 2021. All judging will take place online. No physical entries will be accepted this year, eliminating shipping costs for entrants.
A special tiered pricing structure makes it easier for smaller agencies, studios, and freelancers to participate in the ADC 100th Annual Awards. Larger agencies and brands pay the standard entry fee; smaller shops get a discount on entries (amount varies by discipline) and freelance creatives and one-person shops are eligible for an even greater reduction in their entry fee.
The One Club will for the second year partnership with the creative community Working Not Working on the ADC Freelancer of the Year award and content collaboration.
New for this year is the ADC In-House Design discipline and reduced pricing for personal/unpublished work in Fashion Design, Motion/Film/Gaming Craft, Photography, Illustration, and Typography.
The ADC Annual Awards is the world’s longest continuously-running awards program recognizing global excellence in craft and innovation in all forms of advertising and design. This year presents creatives from around the world with the opportunity to be part of history by winning a coveted ADC Cube in the show’s 100th awards season.
Under the “Once in a Century” theme, this season’s program is promoted by a rare look at a series of ADC Annual Awards call for entry posters from throughout the past century, created by some of the world’s most legendary designers and creative agencies. The showcase is part of the year-long ADC100 centennial celebration, developed by creative studio C&G Partners, New York.
The One Club awards show each has its distinct focus. ADC Annual Awards juries champion excellence in craft, design, and innovation; The One Show judges focus on the creativity of ideas and quality of execution; the Type Directors Club TDC67 Communication Design and 24TDC Typeface Design competitions celebrate brilliance in how letterforms are used and designed.
Unlike for-profit awards shows such as Cannes and others, The One Club is a non-profit organization that puts revenue generated from awards entries back into the industry in the form of programs under its four pillars: Educations, Inclusion & Diversity, Gender Equality, and Professional Development.
These programs include the annual Where Are All The Black People diversity conference and career fair, ONE School free portfolio program for Black creatives, Creative Boot Camps for diverse college students, Right the Ratio Summits addressing gender equality, 2nd Skill to train traditional creatives on UX, UI and content strategy to upskill and future-proof them for the second creative career, Global Educators Summits, Creative Leaders Retreats, mentorship programs for more than 200 young creatives each year, bi-annual Saturday Career Workshops for high school students, and more.
