ADCE new award: The Equal Star
The new special award, ADCE Equal Star, has been created this year as a recognition to a work that promotes inclusion, gender equality and fights against all forms of discrimination. It also aims to celebrate creativity that overcomes stereotypes. The Equal Star will be granted to those campaigns that stand out across all ADCE categories. The new award is inspired by ADCI’s Equal Award, launched in 2017 together with the secretariat of the Presidency of the Italian Chamber of Deputies.

Participation in the ADCE Awards is exclusively granted to works that have been recognized at a national level, offering them international visibility and promotion.
