OF THE YEAR AWARDS
ADC Of the Year awards are determined by the ADC ranking points. Ranking points are determined based on point values outlined on the rankings page. Of the Year awards include Agency, Boutique Agency, Design Team, Boutique Design Studio, Brand-Side Agency, Brand, Non-Profit Client, Production Company, Music & Sound Company and Network of the Year.
With the goal of promoting diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in both agency/production company staffing and the work itself, the Fusion Cube celebrates great work which also demonstrates how underrepresented groups and DEI issues are utilized both "behind the scenes" – hiring diverse staff, ensuring equal opportunity, pay and treatment – and in the creative work, as expressed through casting, language, script and narrative.
The Designism Cube awards work that not only meets peerless creative standards, but also encourages positive societal and political change. The top scoring Gold Cube winning entrants across all Design for Good categories — as selected by their respective juries — will be brought together to be judged across all juries as a whole. The best entry will be awarded the ADC Designism Cube.
In partnership with Working Not Working, all ADC Gold Cube winning entries submitted through the freelance level of the show's tiered pricing structure will be judged again by a separate jury that includes the WNW community. This jury will determine the top entrant, who will receive this honor during the ADC 103rd Annual Awards.
