London (United Kingdom) - There are only 23 days left for the discounted entry rates for the D&AD Awards 2009. Enter before 19 November and save 10%. To encourage a diverse range of entries, prices have been reduced down to the 2005 rates for all the design categories this year.

The members of the design Juries for the D&AD Awards 2009 have been announced. These 300 leading creatives will gather in London and spend up to four days judging 25,000 pieces of work as part of 29 specialist juries.

When making their decision, judges are asked to consider three things. Firstly, the work must be a highly original and inspiring idea. Secondly, it must be exceptionally well executed. Thirdly, it must be relevant to its context.

D&AD President, Garrick Hamm, stated:
"Thank you to everyone for agreeing to be Foremen or on a Jury this year. We've worked incredibly hard to find the right people for the job and are very proud of the final selection. However, in the end we can only do our bit. We've hired the room, set out the stall and in some places even made it cheaper. So now it's up to you to enter the work. I hope to see some truly inspirational work; work that sets new standards; work that hasn’t been seen before."

Eligible entries will be accepted from 15 October until 21 January 2009. Judging takes place from 20-24 April in London and the winners will be announced in June.
