ADC Awards

The ADC Annual Awards is the oldest continuously running industry award show in the world. Now in its incredible 101st 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 as Primary/Secondary. If several agencies are listed under Primary/Secondary, the points are DIVIDED among them.


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