Prestigious Advertising And Design Awards Up For Grabs

South Australia’s premier organisation devoted to the development and promotion of South Australian advertising and design talent, Adelaide Advertising and Design Club (AADC), is calling for final submissions for its 34th annual awards, with entries closing 28 January 2011.

This prestigious black tie event, to be held at the National Wine Centre on 7 March 2011, is the pinnacle of the advertising and design calendar, with the work of SA’s most talented industry professionals to be judged by the leading names in Australian advertising and design.

Co-President of the AADC, Maggie Harris, said South Australia boasts some of the best creative talent in the country.

“The standard of talent within this state is exceptional and continues to see SA advertising and design firms competing not only at a national, but international level,” Maggie said.

“The fact that there are a number of SA-based advertising and design firms with some of the world’s biggest brands on their books is a true testament to the original perspectives and best practice mind-set of those within the local industry.

“It’s important that the achievements of these businesses are celebrated, as it encourages creativity amongst peers and ensures the bar for excellence continues to rise.”

Designer Adam Johnson from Adelaide agency Xtra Shiny was the recipient of 6 AADC awards last year, including an award for art direction on a series of posters designed for iconic local business, Midwest Trader.

Adam said having Xtra Shiny’s work recognised by respected peers within Australian industry was the highlight of the award win.

“The AADC awards are judged by the very best advertising and design professionals in Australia and it’s great to have our work acknowledged by professionals we respect.”

“Being recognised as an outfit that produces quality work is reassuring not only to potential clients, but also to ourselves. It’s confirmation that we are on the right track and producing great work.”

Maggie Harris encourages anyone who has work they would like to be considered to apply.

“There are a wide range of categories that will enable us to see the true breadth of work being produced in SA.”

“The finalists will have their work displayed around the room at The Wine Centre on 7 March to enable everyone to see the fantastic entries up close.”

The 2011 AADC Awards close on January 28, 2011. For more information visit
