About the Dentsu Advertising Awards

The Dentsu Advertising Awards, dating back to December 1947, are Japan's oldest, most comprehensive ad awards. They identify the best advertising communication of advertisers in the previous year, and have two goals. These are to broaden the solutions open to advertisers, by recognizing superior work; and to help develop Japan's industry, economy, and culture.

Selections are made by the Dentsu Advertising Awards Screening Committee, an independent nationwide organization. The committee, made up of 500 members from around Japan, mostly comprises advertisers, media executives, producers, as well as prominent people from academia, the business world, and cultural entities.
