50th edition of the ADG Laus Awards for Graphic Design and Visual Communication

The call of the ADG Laus opens for all printed, published, issued, viewed online or edited works during the year 2019 in the following categories: Graphic, Digital, Advertising, Audiovisual and Student Design. Projects can be registered on the ADG-FAD website from January 7 until February 10. The ADG Laus Awards for Graphic Design and Visual Communication are awarded with the aim of recognizing excellence in graphic communication.
In this anniversary edition the jury is made up of renowned national and international professionals such as Liza Enebeis (Studio Dumbar), Omar Sosa, Ena Cardinal de la Nuez, Aino Hantttu (Hanzo), Conor Cronin, Nacho Padilla, Ana Zelich, Marc Sancho (Dear), Alistair Webb (Made Thought), Carol Mompart, Albert Porta (Practice) or Anna Gasulla (GAS), among others.
The most outstanding novelty of this year affects the Laus Aporta prize, which aims to make visible the contribution of design to society with projects that, through visual communication, have managed to have a positive social, economic or cultural impact. This award, traditionally awarded to any of the pieces presented in any category at the discretion of the jury, becomes a competition section where professionals can register their projects based on the requirements of added social value. In addition, the money collected from these inscriptions will be donated to collaborate with the project “Creativity at the beginning”, an initiative developed by the Red Cross in collaboration with graphic design professionals, which uses creativity as a tool to transform the surrounding reality to girls and boys at risk of exclusion.
One more year, the ADG-FAD Board of Directors will award the Laus de Honor Award to the professional career and L aus Companies and Entities in recognition of those institutions that stand out for their long, fruitful and inspiring relationship with the design.
The study Achos !, ADG-FAD partner, has been selected this year to develop the ADG Laus 2020 awards campaign. The campaign, which in a humorous way is about “doping” in creativity, can be followed through the social networks of ADG-FAD and the collaborating media of the campaign.
The ADG Laus 2020 Magabook, the book that collects the award-winning works of this 50th edition, will be designed by ADG-FAD partner Albert Romagosa, and will be unveiled at the Nit ADG Laus.
In its 50th edition, since the first one held in 1964, ADG-FAD will honor all those who have passed through the Laus through different communicative actions throughout the months, culminating in a Nit ADG Laus, the ceremony and party of delivery of the Laus trophies, which will take place in June during the renewed Barcelona Design Week.
In addition, the association has decided to rethink the materials that make up its iconic trophy designed by Tomás Vellvé in 1969 and take advantage of the event to present a Laus trophy made of sustainable and environmentally friendly materials. The product design studio specialized in circular economy Oiko has been responsible for this reconceptualization.
This line of action will also affect diplomas and, especially, all the materials that are requested to present to the ADG Laus 2020, which must be 100% recyclable at the risk of being disqualified if not.
