ADC 100th Annual Awards Global Creative Rankings methodology

Rankings in each category are calculated by the company that garners the most points overall for winning entries based on ADC Cubes, Merits and Special Awards, allocated as follows: Gold Cube 15 points, Silver 7, Bronze 3, Merit 1, Fusion 30, Designism and Best of Discipline 45 each and Best of Show 90.  Additional detail is here.

If the same entry wins multiple awards within a discipline, the points for the one highest award in that discipline is counted towards “of the Year” awards.

Points are only awarded to agencies listed as Primary and Secondary on entries.  If several agencies are listed under Primary and Secondary, the points are divided among them.  

All ADC 100th Annual Awards Cube and Merit winners were announced last week during the global Creative Week 2021, and can be viewed in the winners showcase here.  

The One Club awards shows each have their distinct focus. The One Show judges focus on creativity of ideas and quality of execution, while juries for the ADC Annual Awards, now in its historic 100th year, maintain their long-running concentration as the champion for craft, design and innovation.

The One Show 2021 Global Creative Rankings were announced yesterday.  The One Club Global Creative Rankings, combining results from The One Show 2021 and ADC 100th Annual Awards, will be announced later this week..
