New Extended Deadline: Friday, April 28 – 12pm EST


The call for entries has been extended for The Advertising & Design Club of Canada’s Directions 2017 Awards – our annual competition celebrating the best work in Canadian Advertising, Graphic Design, Photography and Illustration, Editorial and Book Design, and Interactive Media.

While 2017 marks our 68th annual awards program, our judging process remains the same. Unique among Canadian creative award shows, The ADCC will continue to assemble panels of international creatives who will thoughtfully and methodically vote for Canada’s best creative work. The Directions 2017 judging panels will be announced to the public over the next few months.

Winners will be announced at the Directions 2017 Awards in Toronto on November 2. Winners will also be featured in our printed Annual and on the ADCC Archive – our growing collection of award-winning Canadian work.

The cumulative results of Directions 2017 winners also determine the recipients of our prestigious Scarlet Letter Awards for Agency of the Year, Design Studio of the Year, Interactive Agency of the Year and Production Company of the Year. The Scarlet Letter Awards recognize creative excellence across an entire agency or firm based on the ADCC national awards competition results.

The Directions 2017 extended deadline for entries is Friday, April 28. Hard copies for print work are now due Tuesday, May 2.
