2024 ADCC Awards

Celebrating 75 years of Canadian creativity

This year we celebrate 75 years of our national awards program. A huge milestone for Canadian craft and creativity. Unique among Canadian creative award shows, our non-profit organization assembles panels of international judges who thoughtfully and methodically vote for Canada's best creative work. From the very start, we've encouraged only the highest-quality work, regardless of monetary success or politics, helping shape the legacy of Canadian creativity.

ADCC award winners cement their place in history. Winning work is documented in our printed Awards Annual and featured on the ADCC Archive - our digital collection of Canada's best creative work.

What's new for 2024:

  • A 10% discount on entry fees for freelancers and small shops 
  • New categories in Design, Innovation, Experiential, Digital, and more

Results of the 2024 ADCC Awards determine the recipients of our prestigious our Scarlet Letter Awards for Agency of the Year, Small Agency of the Year, Design Agency of the Year, Design Studio of the Year, and Production Company of the Year. The Scarlet Letter Awards recognize creative excellence across an entire agency or firm.

Our Rising Stars awards are also back for 2024. This portfolio competition recognizes emerging talent in the Canadian creative community, and is open to Art Directors, Copywriters, and Graphic Designers that are 30 or under, or within the first 5 years of their careers. Learn more here.

All winners will be announced at our 2024 ADCC Awards show on November 14th. All winning work will be featured online on the archive at that time.

The Advertising & Design Club of Canada’s Awards Show exists to recognize Canadian creative talent.

This means that the individual creatives responsible are the technical recipients of our awards. For most categories, this means that the creative team must be Canadian and based in Canada. For specific craft categories, individuals and/or their associated companies would be the recipient and must also be Canadian/based in Canada. Generally, this means that agencies and studios submitting their work must be Canadian and based in Canada. We do allow for the participation of non-Canadians in the creation of work entered, but eligibility and whether an entry qualifies depends on the category and certain criteria.

To ensure your entry qualifies, review the detailed eligibility requirements listed in the 2024 ADCC Awards Entry Guide prior to entering.
If you are still unsure whether your work meets the requirements for entry, please contact us before entering your work.

By submiting your work, you acknowledge that you have read and understood the eligibility requirements listed in the entry guide.
Work that is disqualified due to eligibility issues will not be refunded.

Work must have been first published or aired between June 2023 and June 2024 inclusive.

Please note: Work from June 2023 that was entered into the 2023 ADCC Awards cannot be entered into this year’s competition.



The Advertising & Design Club of Canada (ADCC) is not responsible for damage or loss of any entry. All entries become the property of The ADCC. By submitting them, you acknowledge The ADCC’s right to use them for exhibition and publication purposes, including publication online. Judges reserve the right to correct or change the category of an entry where applicable. Entrants may be asked to resubmit winning work for exhibition.
