D&AD used to be the one to win, due to the scarcity of pencils awarded. The new format, in which everyone seems to have won, simply cheapens the process. "In-book" and "nomination" were the close-but-not-quite-brilliant accolades that drove creatives on to bigger and better things - hopefully a silver or gold in future years. But they are not pencils. My Linkedin is currently full of agencies congratulating themselves on "winning 3 or 4 pencils" when perhaps they haven't really won any yellow or black. While the everyone's-a-winner format may suit entry numbers and therefore profits at D&AD, it was the rarity of a pencil that made it so covetable
