D&AD awards director Donal Keenan said: “The 2021 awards will recognise exceptional work created within the past year in the belief that platforming creative thinking is always 

“D&AD’s jurors will once again assemble virtually to review the work – except for the Branding, Graphic, Product, Packaging, Book, Magazine & Newspaper Design and Writing for Design categories, where in-person judging is essential.

New categories
“Multiple new categories this year aim to represent the changing landscape of the creative sector, each being judged by leading figures within each discipline. New categories include E-commerce, Gaming, Type Design and Next Photographer, with additional subcategories within Low Budget and New Realities and Emerging Media.

In total, 94 professionals from across the Asia-Pacific region have been selected to join the juries

A full list of this year’s juries, alongside details on the new categories, judging criteria and pricing, can be found on the D&AD website.
