D&AD exists to recognise creative ideas that are driving positive change. It does so by elevating purposeful products, initiatives and campaigns; by accelerating projects with the potential for impact through a 12-month Future Impact programme; and by educating brands and entrepreneurs on incorporating purpose into their business strategy.
D&AD Future Impact winners will be announced on 23 October 2019, with Impact winners revealed at the Impact Showcase on 6 November, New York.
