“For nearly a century, the ADC Cube has been awarded for work based on excellence in craft, design and innovation,“ said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club for Creativity. “This strong tradition is alive and well in the hands of this year’s jury members, who are recognised creative leaders in their fields.”
Tiered pricing structure
This year’s competition marks the continuation of a tiered pricing system designed to make it easier for smaller studios, agencies and freelancers to participate in the ADC Annual Awards.
The fee structure varies depending on whether the submitting firm is a design studio or ad agency. Design studios with between 2-20 employees get a discount (amount varies by discipline), while ad agencies with between 2-50 employees qualify for the tiered pricing discount. Freelance creatives and one-person shops in either design or advertising are eligible for an even greater reduction in their entry fee.
ADC Freelancer of the Year Award
The ADC Annual Awards enhances its support for freelancers this year with the recently announced new partnership with creative hiring platform Working Not Working and launch of the ADC Freelancer of the Year Award.
All ADC 99th Annual Awards Gold Cube-winning entries submitted through the freelance level of the show’s tiered pricing system will be judged again by a separate jury that includes the Working Not Working community. This jury will determine the top freelance winner, who will receive the new honor at the ADC 99th Annual Awards during Creative Week in New York in May, 2020.
