D&AD Awards – Liveblogging for BizCommunity

Tonight I have been asked by BizCommunity to live blog the prestigious D&AD Awards at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

The D&AD Awards, familiarly known as the ‘Yellow Pencils’, are the most internationally respected and prestigious creative awards for the design and advertising industries.

Each year Yellow Pencils (previously also known as Silver Awards) and Black Pencils (previously also known as Gold Awards) are presented at a gala ceremony in London before 1,800 guests. All the winners, plus a wider body of the year’s best work, are showcased in the D&AD Annual & Showreel.

Tonight promises lots of fun with the night kicking off with a champagne reception, followed by the Awards Ceremony and then off to the official after party which will include lots of mingling with creative folk and live performances by the awesome Hot Chip and the beatbox champion of the world BeardyMan.

Make sure to follow all the live action on the BizCommunity blog or follow my tweets.
