The competition of the Art Directors Club für Deutschland (ADC) e. V. looks for the best creative works published in Germany, Austria and Switzerland every year. It is one of the largest and most important creative competitions in the German-speaking world. The best ideas in the fields of advertising, design, editorial, audiovisual and digital media as well as spatial staging that inspire both experts and the public alike are honoured.
An important concern is the promotion of talents, supported by a competition for young talents. And not a year goes by without the media designers of the DHBW Ravensburg getting involved and winning nail after nail.
