The pencils awarded come in a variety of types, including Wood, Graphite, Yellow, White and Black. The Wood Pencil is equivalent to a Bronze award, while Graphite is equal to Silver.

The iconic D&AD Yellow Pencil is awarded only to the most outstanding work of creative genius, while White is work of Yellow Pencil level that demonstrates the ability to create real, powerful change in the world.

And the Black Pencil represents the ultimate creative accolade, groundbreaking in its field, with only a handful (if any) awarded each year, while the Most Awarded pencil prize goes to top agencies, studios, production and clients each year.
