Calling Adelaide’s Creatives: AADC Awards Now Open

Entries opened on the 30 of March for the Adelaide Advertising and Design Club’s (AADC) 35th Annual Awards, which recognise the cream of Adelaide’s creative crop.

AADC Co President, Jim Robinson said this year’s Awards are expected to reap an eclectic mix of work from an array of talented new entrants as well as the seasoned professionals.

“There’s a real sense of excitement surrounding the Awards, which began building after the highly anticipated theme, “For the love of ideas”, was announced to the industry last month,” Jim said.

“We also unveiled the revamped Awards system, where category systems have been refined to better reflect today’s industry.”

The new system draws on elements of similar Awards throughout the world, raising the standards and allowing Adelaide members to be recognised and counted on the international stage.

“Adelaide has a thriving creative industry and our Awards provide the perfect platform to showcase our outstanding work and people,” Jim said.

“Bring on the entries!”

The 11 categories are:

-Film Craft

-Sound Craft

-Moving Images




-Out of home



-Activations (new)

-Big Idea (new)

The 35th Annual AADC Awards officially opened on 30 March 2012 and close on 27 April 2012. Work published for the first time between 1 January 2011 and 31 March 2012 will be eligible to enter.
