At Advertising Week Europe, D&AD CEO, Tim Lindsay, and president, Laura Jordan Bambach, stepped up to talk about the judging process and show us some impeccable work from this year (see all the creative below).

D&AD is an elite advertising and awards show with an enormous panel of industry legends flying in from all over the world to judge the work. Each of the many categories have their own judging panel who decide who, if anyone, should win the coveted Yellow Pencil. The chairman of each of those panels then get together to decide if anyone deserves the rare Black Pencil.

Key tip for students

Enter D&AD New Blood. Speaking to Tim Lindsay after the talk, he said that every single student winner last year who wanted a job, got one. Winning a pencil pretty much guarantees you a job at a great agency. And even if you don't win, the process is a lot of fun and will help prepare you for working on briefs in agencies.
