Creatives aspiring to win a D&AD Pencil this year will have an extra week to complete their entries, following the announcement of a deadline extension. Entrants will now have until Wednesday, February 25, to submit work for the 2015 D&AD Global Advertising and Design Awards.
However, entries received after Wednesday, February 18, will be subject to a 20 per cent surcharge to cover additional resources needed to process late entries during the extension period.
D&AD Judging Week this year will take place in the new location of The Old Truman Brewery, East London’s revolutionary arts and creative quarter. Held from Sunday April 19 – Thursday, April 23, D&AD will be opening up Judging Week to the public for the first time, with an exhibition of winning work headlining a full programme of fringe events.
Eric Kallman, Rei Inamoto, Harriet Devoy and Kai-lu Hsiung are among the leading creatives judging this year’s Awards, with the full list available to view at http://www.dandad.org/judges.
