What does 7,000 m2 of space plus 24,480 pieces of work plus 310 judges, divided by 45 hours of decision making and 29 categories equal? The perfect equation to identify the year's most groundbreaking work and the final winners of D&AD Yellow Pencils.
For five gruelling days in closed sessions, the world's top creative practitioners judged the entries to the D&AD Global Awards 2006, following intense debate, discovery, some disputes, and finally, anonymous voting.
It wasn't all work work work however, as D&AD judges were rewarded for their efforts with a networking event hosted by UK Trade & Investment and a D&AD party at JWT London, who kindly supplied the venue.
"D&AD put on a spectacular show this year - and that was just the judging,' said TV & Cinema Graphics Jury Foreman Jonathan Kneebone from The Glue Society, Sydney. "With a record number of entries, and over 300 judges from around the world, you can be sure more people than ever before are going to be disappointed this year - but that's why D&AD remains the ultimate award for any creative individual."

I heard Chuck Norris was a finalist. He's sure to win, he's never lost anything yet.

Oh dear, kiddies. Isn't anyone who reads this blog either old enough or worldly enough to realise that the names 3:14 listed are former football and basketball heros?

You've had your eager little legs pulled.

Mr T entered as well.

That means if Chuck and Mr T never loose, we may see the end of the world as two unstoppable forces collide.
