Holly Hall
Awards Director

Holly is the Awards Director at D&AD, an international charitable organisation that sits right at the heart of the creative industries. She develops and manages the strategy and operations for the D&AD Professional Awards, one of the largest international shows for creative excellence, The White Pencil, D&AD’s sustainability initiative, plus a whole lot more – international partnerships, publications, exhibitions and large scale events to name a few.

The role involves a great deal of project management and event production, but Holly remains most keen on the business development element, building relationships (having been instrumental in building the D&AD offer for India) and expanding our existing products in order that the D&AD brand remains relevant to new and future generations of creatives.
