ADCE new Green Star Award

The new ADCE Green Star Award has been created as a recognition to a work that promotes circular economy, sustainability, or the protection of the environment. It should stand out across all ADCE categories and can come from any category in the show.

Similarly, the Genius Loci Award was created last year to celebrate the values of Europe’s diverse local cultures by recognising the spirit of the place and, in 2019, the European Star-Johannes Newrlka Award was created for ideas that reflect European values such as diversity and inclusion, freedom, justice and the promotion of peace.

These three special awards will be given to those campaigns that stand out across all ADCE categories. They can be commercially driven or done for good, have had a real impact on society, and they must be comprehensible throughout Europe.


Only for the best in Europe

The ADCE Awards is the only award scheme to bring together the best European award-winning work under one competition. Participation in the ADCE Awards is exclusively granted to works that have been recognized at a national level, offering them international visibility and promotion.
