ICAD The Best Of Us | Awards & Exhibition 2021



It’s time to bring out your best for the 2021 ICAD Awards and Exhibition. And the good news is that we are maintaining the reduced fee of €25 per entry from last year.  Our ICAD much coveted bell will be awarded to winning work. 

In addition, we are fixing membership fees at last year’s rate. Please remember that you must be an ICAD member to enter work. To find out more about ICAD’s membership offering, or to apply for or renew membership, please go to

Members entries received by March 15th will be fixed at €25. Work from February 1st 2020 to March 31st 2021 can be included. Commended 2020 winners will automatically be entered and proceed to ICAD Awards 2021. Late entries received by March 31st will be subject to a fee of €50. 

All commended work will feature in the ICAD THE BEST OF US EXHIBITION 2021. Building on last year’s epic exhibition, this will be the biggest campaign showcase of Irish advertising and design ever publicly staged in Ireland. 

The work will take to the streets in November 2021 with live projections on iconic buildings, and feature in a network of outdoor digital and large format posters. In addition, there will be a comprehensive print, press and television campaign. 

According to Rossi McCauley ICAD President: “As a creative working in Ireland, winning an ICAD Bell is something special. But, equally, being an ICAD member connects you to something special and worthwhile. It is your participation and support that ensures our ability to continue this social project of supporting our creative community. We have a shared responsibility to ensure that the opportunities we have been afforded, and the supports and benefits we have received, continue to exist for those who will become ICAD”. 

The Institute of Creative Advertising and Design (ICAD), is not for profit, membership-led body. Our mission is to foster, promote and reward creative excellence in Irish advertising and design.
