This marks the first year the ADC Annual Awards is part of The One Club for Creativity, the leading global non-profit creative organization formed by last fall’s merger of ADC and The One Club.  ADC Cubes are awarded based upon excellence in craft, design and innovation.  

“It’s always an inspiring night when the industry comes together to celebrate and elevate the world’s best creative work at the ADC Annual Awards,” said Michael O’Rourke, ADC executive director.  “ADC began as a progressive force back in 1920 as the first creative organization for the commercial arts.  It’s an honor for us to continue that legacy under The One Club for Creativity and salute all of this year’s winners for work that truly represents the best in global craft, design and innovation.”

Winning professional work was awarded at the ADC 96th Annual Awards Gala on May 8, 2017 at Artbeam, New York, with ADC student winners presented at the Young Ones Festival & ADC Student Awards Ceremony on May 9, 2017, at West Edge NYC.

“No other global creative organization gives back to the advertising and design industries with this level of comprehensive educational and development programming,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club.   “ADC Annual Awards and The One Show celebrate creative excellence on a global level, as well as generate revenue that is funneled right back into the industry to fund this important programming."
