About D&AD & Judging Week 2015:
Since 1962, D&AD has been inspiring a community of creative thinkers by celebrating and stimulating the finest in design and advertising. A D&AD Award is recognised globally as the ultimate creative accolade, entered and attended by the best creative decision makers from around the world. Set to reward, promote and enable creative brilliance in all areas of creative communication, a Yellow – or Black – Pencil remains the pinnacle in many careers.
Held at The Old Truman Brewery in east London’s vibrant arts and media quarter, D&AD Judging Week 2015 will be held 19-23 April. It will feature a full programme of events, talks and exhibitions, celebrating and showcasing the best in commercial creativity.
Tim Lindsay, Chief Executive, D&AD commented, “We’ve always taken great pride in our judging events. Each year, it’s Judging Week that is the true highlight of the D&AD calendar – both for ourselves and the creatives who join us from all over the world to judge the work.
“But most importantly, we’re making this celebration of creativity available to all. Anyone can come down and explore the work; anyone can come down and listen to an array of extremely talented people and hear what really goes on behind those jury doors. At its heart, D&AD is about sharing, collaboration and inspiration – and that’s exactly what we’re looking to do by creating this Judging Week event.”
