2022 ADCC Awards

Call For Entries: Mar 29, 2022 12:00 PM - Jun 15, 2022 11:00 PM EDT



The ADCC Awards celebrate the best in Canadian creativity.

Unique among Canadian creative award shows, we continue to assemble panels of international judges who will recognize and award Canada’s best creative work in Advertising, Design and Interactive.

What’s new for 2022:

  • Submissions remain online-only - no physical materials required.
  • New Rising Stars portfolio competition recognizing emerging creative talent - open to Art Directors, Copywriters and Designers that are 30 and under.

The results of 2022 ADCC Awards winners determine the recipients of our prestigious Scarlet Letter Awards for Agency of the Year, Design Agency of the Year, Design Studio of the Year, Interactive Agency of the Year and Production Company of the Year. The Scarlet Letter Awards recognize creative excellence across an entire agency or firm based on the ADCC national awards competition results.

All winners will be announced at our 2022 ADCC Awards show on November 17th. 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.

To ensure your entry qualifies, pay close attention to the category name. For example, if you are entering a photography or illustration category, the award recipient would be the photographer or illustrator. The award recipient must be Canadian, or have official residence status in Canada. For most of the other categories, a key creative team member such as the art director, writer or designer would be the award recipient and therefore must be Canadian. The entry rules do allow for the participation of non-Canadians in the creation of work entered. However, the key creative individual responsible for the work must be Canadian. If you are unsure whether your work meets the requirements for entry, please contact The Advertising & Design Club of Canada (ADCC).

Work must have been first published or aired between January 2021 and June 2022 inclusive.

Please note: Work from January 2021 that was entered into the 2021 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.

All entrants must submit an Executive Approval Form with their entries. This form must be filled out by the Creative Director or other lead creative responsible for your entries. Forms can be emailed to awards@theadcc.ca or faxed to 416.423.3362
