Entering the Awards is easy, with the use of our online awards system.

Make a start on your entries, and save them as drafts to continue working on them throughout the entry period.

Files for Entry

The online platform is intuitive and includes information throughout the entry process covering what's required, though you will need to prepare the below for each entry:

  • The entry file(s) to be judged, which need to be stripped of any agency, studio or entrant details. Your entry must remain anonymous to the Jury.
  • Media may be supplied as:
    • Stills: JPEG, PDF, TIFF, or PNG
    • Audio: MP3 or WAV
    • Video: mp4 video, ideally 1080p 6000Kb/s bitrate (ie. about 50MB per minute).
  • A 300dpi TIFF, JPEG or PNG feature image and supporting copy for the printed book, online gallery and ongoing promotional purposes.
  • Your "Pitch" copy, which is seen by the judges when evaluating your work.
  • A website link (if relevant)
  • One-page PDF exhibition board (see below)

One-Page Exhibition Board

At the Awards each year, welcome drinks are located within the Finalist Exhibition, showcasing the work of all entries who are deemed worthy of a finalist, and will go on to compete for Awards and Chairs.

We require your help when preparing your entries to bring this exhibition together.


We have prepared InDesign templates, one portrait and one landscape, with some suggested layout options and placeholder text for the entry details. The templates no longer have the AADC logo or allow for the agency or studio to add their logo. This is to maximise the visual impact of the work and to ensure we have a consistent layout across the exhibition.

We ask that you stick to the formats supplied to ensure we have the best possible presentation of the work to showcase what our amazingly creative industry is capable of.
