Your idea will be seen and reviewed by 70 of the most influential leaders in their field and also the winners will be promoted globally to more than 1.2 million people through the D&AD, Advertising Week and media partner platforms.
A D&AD Impact Pencil is more than an award, it’s a tangible signifier that your creative idea, product, project or campaign is a worthwhile driver of positive real-world change. Winners have the opportunity to access a network of influencers and innovators, making new connections to amplify your initiative and increase your idea’s reach and ability to make an impact.
