D&AD to host private screening of 2016 D&AD Award winners in Sydney on Friday 20 May
This year D&AD will be hosting a private screening of the 2016 D&AD Award winners in Australia.
Be part of D&AD Awards Ceremony: the biggest celebration of global advertising and design on Friday morning the 20th of May. This event is exclusively brought to Sydney by Shutterstock.
Join the finest minds in communications, design, film and technology to experience first-hand the awarding of 2016's Wood, Graphite, Yellow, White and Black pencils.
London's biggest night will simultaneously be celebrated Down Under with a selection of the best work and the announcement of the D&AD winners. Including award-winning work from Australia and New Zealand.
Hosted by Jonathan Kneebone (left), co-founder of The Glue Society, the
screening will be held in Sydney's Eternity Playhouse Theatre in
Darlinghurst. There will be a strong focus around this years judging
process, D&AD's festival and most importantly, the recognition of
the best creative work from around the world this year.
Says Kneebone: "The diversity of creative work being scrutinised and judged at award shows around the world is growing and becoming ever more complex.
"And while at some events, every category has a winner, diluting the value of the achievements - D&AD sets a universal standard across all the various categories - and seeks out the stuff that is original, contemporary, relevant, valuable and brilliantly crafted. So a winner here is really worth celebrating and recognising.
"It will be fascinating to see these displayed, spot the trends and explore the reasons why certain work stood up to the scrutiny to the judges through the eyes of some of this year's Australian jurors."
Some of the Australian judges who participated this year at D&AD Judging will share their insights and outtakes of the jury experience as well.
Some notable jurors include: Dave Bowman (right), Creative Director Special Group (Integrated), Richard Bullock, Director Hungry Man (Creativity for Good), Jo de Fina, Executive Producer The Otto Empire (Music videos) and Tara McKenty Creative Director Google Australia (Direct).
