There are no quotas for awards at D&AD. Therefore the number of awarded entries fluctuates year to year. Some years no Black Pencils are awarded: the record currently stands at just six. Traditionally the toughest of the awards shows, the judging process is famously rigorous, with the juries only selecting work they believe is truly exceptional.

D&AD CEO Tim Lindsay commented: “Entries to D&AD have gone up over 10% this year and from listening to our juries, it sounds like the standard is higher than ever. 

“Particularly across our design categories, we’re delighted to see such a diverse and fascinating array of work come in from all corners of the globe – it’s certainly the most international awards we’ve ever seen.”
