All the winners: First day of D&AD 2017

The first set of D&AD Pencil winners have been announced, with three SA entries making the grade in the first eight categories!
D&AD 2017's first set of results coincide with the first day of D&AD Festival 2017, which has kicked off at the Old Truman Brewery in London, but entrants will have to wait until the Award Ceremony at Troxy, London on Thursday, 27 April to find out which colour Pencil - Wood, Graphite, Yellow or Black - they’ve won.

  1. United Kingdom - 38 Pencils
  2. United States - 33 Pencils
  3. Australia - 17 Pencils
  4. France - 9 Pencils
  5. Japan, Singapore and Sweden (tied) - 7 Pencils

The top ranking companies so far are:

  • Great Guns and Clemenger BBDO Melbourne (tied) - 4 Pencils
  • Kinetic Singapore, Iconoclast, The New York Times Magazine, CHI&Partners, Ogilvy & Mather Chicago, Ogilvy New York (tied) - 3 Pencils

As there are no quotas for awards at D&AD, the number of awarded entries fluctuates year to year. This means some years no Black Pencils are awarded: the record currently stands at just six - keep your eyes peeled!

All 177 pieces of winning work will appear in the 55th D&AD Annual, published later this year.
