D&AD are ramping up the excitement surrounding their 50th Anniversary by announcing that hip hop trio De La Soul will be performing. They've also revealed that hawk-eyed ad-watchers could be in for a chance of winning tickets to the event.
Not only that, but if you don't fancy cocktails and three courses with a thousand members of the creative community, you can buy a ticket just for the After Party. This will allow you to watch the Most Awarded announcements, followed by the entertainment.
To mark their 50 year birthday, a unique bespoke painting has been created by design agency GBH. Almost everything in the picture has some resonance to a part of D&AD's history. You'll see annuals, members, and award winning work – but what else is in there? They’re challenging you to find the 50 items and tell them what they are. The prize is big - two full tickets to our 50/Celebration.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org [subject: 50 Years Competition] listing as many items as you can find, along with why they're relevant to D&AD. The person who finds the most items, and accompanying reasons wins. To inspect the picture, head to Flickr here.
Deadline is Thursday 13 September, winners will be notified on Friday 14 September - enough time to get your '50 years of Glamour' outfit prepared for the event on 18 September.
