Traditionally the toughest of the awards shows, the judging process is famously rigorous, with the juries only selecting work they believe is truly exceptional.

D&AD CEO Tim Lindsay commented: “D&AD Festival 2017 is well under way and it is a spectacular explosion of creativity. From today the 26,000 pieces of work that have been entered into the D&AD Professional Awards can be viewed by all, and we would encourage everyone to take in the sheer breadth of creative excellence that is on show this year. We can’t wait to share the winners with you at the Ceremony tomorrow.”
