And Now, a Quick Look into 2013 D&AD Black Pencil Judging

While the 2013 D&AD Awards is now in the books, the folks behind the event, like last year, have released a post-game video documenting the seemingly painstaking process of deciding who takes home D&AD’s most prestigious prize, the Black Pencil. Thankfully, there’s less debate and dillydallying this time around as the parties who produced this clip have shaved off half the time from last year’s Black Pencil instalment, which featured judges like David Droga and Bob Greenberg. This year’s version, meanwhile, features Black Pencil judges including W+K alum/Google Creative Labs ECD Iain Tait, Fred & Farid co-founder Fred Raillard and Turner Duckworth’s David Turner. In total, there were four 2013 Black Pencil winners (we’re almost certain you can guess one of them) as you’ll see at the end of the video, which lets you be a fly on the wall if only for a few. FYI, D&AD 2014 call for entries is now open.
