This marks the first year the ADC Annual Awards is part of The One Club for Creativity (TOCC), the leading global non-profit creative organisation formed by last fall’s merger of ADC and The One Club.  ADC Cubes are awarded based upon excellence in craft, design and innovation.  

“It’s always an inspiring night when the industry comes together to celebrate and elevate the world’s best creative work at the ADC Annual Awards,” said Michael O’Rourke, ADC executive director.  “ADC began as a progressive force back in 1920 as the first creative organisation for the commercial arts.

Debbie Millman served as host for the ADC 96th Annual Awards gala. Named “one of the most influential designers working today” by Graphic Design USA, Millman is also a noted writer, educator, artist, brand consultant and host of the Design Matters podcast.

Winning professional work was awarded at the ADC 96th Annual Awards Gala on May 8, 2017 at Artbeam, New York, with ADC student winners presented at the Young Ones Festival & ADC Student Awards Ceremony on May 9, 2017, at West Edge NYC.  

ADC 96th Annual Awards is part of The One Club for Creativity’s Creative Week in New York, taking place May 8th-12th, 2017.  The preeminent festival showcasing the intersection of advertising, innovation and creative thinking, Creative Week also includes The One Show over two nights, the dynamic Young Ones Festival and inspiring sessions with some of the biggest names in the industry at the Creative Summit.

TOCC serves as the umbrella organisation for The One Show, ADC Annual Awards, Young Guns, Creative Week, One Screen, Hall of Fame and nearly a dozen successful global programs that fall under four key pillars: education, inclusion and diversity, professional development and gender equality.

“No other global creative organisation gives back to the advertising and design industries with this level of comprehensive educational and development programming,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club.  “ADC Annual Awards and The One Show celebrate creative excellence on a global level, as well as generate revenue that is funnelled right back into the industry to fund this important programming."

The ADC 96th Annual Awards and other organisation activities throughout the year are made possible in part through the generous support of global partner Shutterstock.

“Shutterstock is proud to be a longtime sponsor of ADC and its community, and we’re excited to continue our close relationship as the organisation grows together with The One Club for Creativity,” said Terrence Morash, creative director at Shutterstock. “Our shared goal of nurturing and propelling the global creative community forward makes this partnership a natural fit, and we look forward to working with ADC to produce programming with a focus on craft, design and innovation."
