With some of the most talked about campaigns of the last 12 months being those that reacted in real time to world events, organisers said a ‘Tactical Advertising’ category across Press, Radio, Outdoor and Digital competitions has been introduced. Campaigns that responded to the news agenda or were created as one-off pieces will be considered, informed a D&AD statement.

Under Mobile Marketing, two new categories have been introduced: ‘UX, Interface & Navigation for Mobile Marketing’ and ‘Use of Mobile Technology’.

Among others, D&AD has also introduced three new categories for ‘Innovation’ under the Integrated & Earned Media, Digital Marketing and Digital Design competitions.

To recognise and reward those who are at the forefront of the business, we have also introduced new categories to accurately reflect the emerging directions for the industry.”
