Says Michael O'Rourke, executive director, ADC: "For nearly a century, the ADC Cube has been awarded for work based on excellence in craft, design and innovation. This strong tradition is alive and well in the hands of this year's jury members such as Michele, who are recognized creative leaders in their fields."

The ADC 98th Annual Awards are part of The One Club for Creativity, the world's foremost non-profit organization celebrating creative excellence in advertising and design.  Entries can be submitted via, final deadline is January 31, 2019.

This year's competition marks continuation of a tiered pricing structure, designed to make it easier for smaller studios, agencies and freelancers to participate in the ADC Annual Awards.  

The fee structure varies depending on whether the submitting firm is a design studio or ad agency.  Design studios with between 2-20 employees get a discount (amount varies by discipline), while ad agencies with between 2-50 employees qualify for the tiered pricing discount.  Freelance creatives and one-person shops in either design or advertising are eligible for an even greater reduction in their entry fee.
