Big changes are coming to The ADCC. Here’s everything that you need to know about the Club while we rebuild our site.

Who We Are

Since its founding in 1948, The Advertising & Design Club of Canada (ADCC) has been dedicated to its mission of championing creative excellence in our nation’s creative community.

As the only non-profit organization dedicated to Canada’s design and advertising community, The ADCC has spent over 70 years representing, promoting and inspiring our industry’s creative professionals and students.

Board of Directors

The ADCC is run by a Board of Directors of industry leaders who volunteer their time to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of our community.

The ADCC keeps the Canadian creative bar high by recognizing creative excellence on an annual basis.

Our ADCC Awards are judged solely by international creatives, avoiding bias and ensuring the work we award is held to a higher global standard.

We also promote the next generation of creative talent through our Student Competition and acknowledge lifetime achievement through the Les Usherwood Award.

And every November, we bring our creative community together for the ADCC Awards show to celebrate the year’s best work.
The 2022 ADCC Awards are now closed for entries. Winners to be announced in November. Details to be posted on the ADCC Awards website here↗

Key Dates

Professional deadline is June 3. Student deadline is June 10. ADCC Awards Week will take place November 14-17, including our show on the 17th.

We preserve Canada’s creative history through our collection of award-winning work that dates back to our first show in 1949.

Our digital archive will return later this year. In the meantime, you can take a look at our most recent winners.


Our educational programming series serves Canada’s advertising and design community, featuring relevant topics and local and international industry leaders.

Aside from our annual show and Awards Week, we host recurring virtual events and speaker/exhibition series. We have a lot of exciting events planned for 2022, stay tuned for details.
