D&AD Awards 2011

25 September 2010

D&AD has announced that their programme for 2011 will launch on October 21. The team has supplied us with a full list of confirmed categories, and the deadlines for submitting entries -

Deadline 4 March (Upload)
Advertising, Animation, Book Design, Illustration, Integrated Advertising
Integrated Communication, Moving Image, Open Advertising 2, Packaging Design
Photography, Typography, What Else Do You Do?

Deadline 11 March (Physical)
Branding, Digital Design, Digital Direct, Environmental, Furniture Design
Interactive Design, Open Advertising, Open Graphic, Product Design.

If you’re wondering why there are different deadlines, the judges have requested more time with the work for certain categories.

For the March 4 deadline, any work receiving a single vote from a preliminary judging round will progress, and you'll then be required to submit the physical work.

D&AD have provided a later deadline for some of the bigger categories, which follow the standard physical entry process.

The Design Team will be integrating D&AD briefs into the delivery schedule from November onwards.
