D&AD Judging 3.jpgAll 69 pieces will appear in the 52nd D&AD Annual, published by TASCHEN in September.
There are no quotas for awards at D&AD. Therefore the number of awarded entries fluctuates year to year. Some years no Black Pencils are awarded: the record currently stands at just six. Traditionally the toughest of the awards shows, the judging D&AD Judging 4.jpgprocess is famously rigorous, with the juries only selecting work they believe is truly exceptional.
The full list of work that has been awarded In-Book and Nomination following judging can be found at http://ww.dandad.org.
Says Tim Lindsay, D&AD CEO: "Entries to D&AD have gone up over 10% this year and from listening to our juries, it sounds like the standard is higher than ever.
"Particularly across our design categories, we're delighted to see such a diverse and fascinating array of work come in from all corners of the globe - it's certainly the most international awards we've ever seen."
