Hall of Fame
Since 1971, the Art Directors Club Hall of Fame has identified and honored those innovators who have made significant contributions to art direction and visual communications, and whose lifetime achievements represent the highest standards of creative excellence. An exhibition of the year's distinguished laureates accompanies the opening dinner each year.
The ADC Vision Award was established in 1954 to honor companies and individuals in management for their commitment to design and their superior understanding of its relation to performance.
Each year, following its showing in New York, the International Annual Awards Exhibition of Gold, Silver and Bronze winners embarks on a worldwide tour.
The Art Directors Club representative program is in its inaugural year and has sought out individuals or organizations from around the globe engaged in Advertising, Design, Interactive/Digital Arts, Photography, Illustration, Media, Education and Communications that will help promote global awareness of the club as well as the prestigious honor of winning an ADC Cube.
The program offers representatives a unique and rewarding opportunity to be an integral part of the continued global success of the Art Directors Club.
ADC Representatives are instrumental in a number of areas: finding hosts for the annual traveling exhibition; suggesting key individuals to participate on the jury panel for the annual awards competition; acting as ADCís official exclusive representative in his/her country by distributing ADC press, Call for Entries, deadlines and jury information; and helping ADC connect with the advertising, design, education and visual communications industry in his/her country.
