The DCD>Awards recognizes the most outstanding projects, people and teams, and this year we received more entries than ever before across 11 categories.

We're thrilled to announce the shortlisted finalists, with all entries independently judged by the largest and most diverse panel of renowned experts in the 16 year history of the awards. Our judges combed through hundreds of entries to select the shortlist of 52 finalists across 13 judged categories, including outstanding projects from 23 countries.

Winners will be announced on 7 December at the DCD>Awards Gala Dinner & Ceremony, hosted in Central London at the glamorous Park Plaza Hotel, Westminster Bridge. Hosts for the evening will be British comedian Hugh Dennis and celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott, who will be helping us raise funds for our charity partner, Chain of Hope.

To find out who is crowned the winner, tune in to the live stream on 7 December, unless you of course already have the hot ticket!
