D&AD exists to stimulate, enable and award creative excellence in design and advertising.
Since 1962, D&AD has been inspiring a community of creative thinkers by celebrating and stimulating the finest in design and advertising. The D&AD Professional Awards are recognised globally as the ultimate creative accolade, entered and attended by the best from around the world.
But it's much more than just awards. Members join a vibrant global community, whilst creatives and clients are inspired by a world-class Training programme.
As a non-profit advertising association, all D&AD's surpluses go straight into programmes such as New Blood, inspiring the next generation of creative talent and stimulating the creative industry to work towards a fairer more sustainable future.
