The only exceptions are the Book Design, Graphic Design, Magazine & Newspaper Design, Packaging Design, and Product Design categories, where in-person judging is essential.
Donal Keenan, Awards Director at D&AD, commented: “Now in its 60th year, the D&AD Awards have grown to incorporate more than 40 categories judged by a cohort of nearly 400 of the world’s leading creative minds. Each year, our Judges ensure that the awards maintain the highest possible standard for judging, making it one of the ultimate creative accolades. Their expertise and insight will be invaluable when determining this year’s winners and which innovative, creative work will stand the test of time and inspire a global community of creative thinkers.”
