ADC Awards

The ADC Annual Awards is the oldest continuously running industry award show in the world. Now in its incredible 102nd year, these awards celebrate the very best in advertising, digital media, graphic and publication design, packaging and product design, motion, experiential and spatial design, photography, illustration and fashion design all with a focus on artistry and craftsmanship.

Agency of the Year is awarded to the Agency that garners the most points overall for winning entries (Cubes, Merits, Special Awards), allocated per the points chart.

Design Team of the Year is awarded to the year's highest-scoring design team that garners the most points overall for winning entries (Cubes, Merits, Special Awards), allocated per the chart.

Points are only awarded to agencies credited under the Primary Agency listing. If several agencies are listed, the points are DIVIDED among them.


MULTIPLE AWARDS WITHIN A DISCIPLINE
If the same piece of work won multiple awards within a Discipline, the points for the one (1) highest award* in that discipline were counted.
*For work that received a Best of Discipline honor, the points for both the Gold win and Best of Discipline win were counted within that Discipline.


AWARDS IN MULTIPLE DISCIPLINES
If the same piece of work won awards across multiple Disciplines, the points for the highest award per discipline were counted.


For 2022, the rankings were determined based on the point values listed on this chart:
