No physical entries will be accepted this year due to the ongoing pandemic. All entry media must be uploaded into the online entry system.

Branding for the ADC 101st Annual Awards was developed by DDB Paris. The One Club awards shows each have their distinct focus: ADC Annual Awards juries look to champion excellence in craft, design and innovation, while The One Show judges focus on creativity of ideas and quality of execution.

The One Club is a non-profit organisation that puts revenue generated from awards entries back into the industry in the form of programmes under its four pillars: Educations, Inclusion and Diversity, Gender Equality and Professional Development.
