Designed for creative leaders working towards sustainable change, D&AD Future Impact is a 12-month programme of mentoring, training, visibility and travel bursaries for winners of D&AD Awards. Entry deadline: 15 July 2020.
Future Impact exists to accelerate creative ideas that demonstrate the potential of driving positive change. It does so by recognising newly released or prototypical designs and initiatives; by elevating creativity for social good through a 12-month programme. Work must have ambition and scale, and prioritise people and planet alongside profit.
Future Impact is for prototypes, MVPs, product and services in alpha or beta testing or project seeking funds. If your work is publicly released and already driving positive change for social good, please enter in into Impact.
Future Impact as a new category at D&AD Awards supports and accelerates ideas with the potential to create change.
Innovators, entrepreneurs, creatives, students, designers, brands, start-ups and social enterprises are all invited to apply before the deadline of 15 July 2020. The winning cohort will have access to a shared prize fund delivered over 12 months; a combination of mentoring, training, visibility and bursaries. Known as Future Impacters, they will also receive a coveted D&D Pencil and access to a creative, peer-driven network.
Their mission? To enable a cohort of Future Impacters to deliver tangible impact within 12 months.
