The D&AD Professional Awards 2016 ceremony, which took place in London last night, showed off a swag of Aussie talent who picked up a stack of pencils to add to the glass cabinet.

D&AD celebrates and nurtures outstanding work in the design and advertising industry each year with its international creative awards.

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.

Representing the Australia/NZ region, Y&R NZ walked away with 11 pencils across a range of categories including the coveted Black & Gold Pencil for Most Awarded Advertising Agency.
