Since 2010, the adobo Design Awards (ADA) has honored the brightest and best talents in contemporary creativity. For 2015, the ADA is set to surpass last year’s record-breaking edition to highlight the state-of-the-art in print, publishing and advertising.

This year American Institute of Graphic Arts Medal award-winner Lucille Tenazas will be serving as returning jury president, overseeing a panel of industry notables and luminaries in judging the entries across 14 categories.

With the overall theme of ‘Design for the Future’, ADA 2015 is inviting all enthusiasts, practitioners, freelancers and students of design and advertising to submit their entries showcasing their most creatively effective solutions for Philippine social issues.
