D&AD Awards: winners announced

The winners of Britain's top design and advertising awards, the D&AD Awards 2013, have been announced, with the highest honours going to three campaigns we made a big noise about on Creative Bloq when they were originally released last year.

Dumb Ways to Die, a viral ad for Melbourne's Metro Trains we first told you about last November, won a Black Pencil (the top award) as well as getting the highest number of Yellow Pencils (five). Meet the Superhumans, Channel 4’s superb trailer for its Paralympics TV coverage (above) which we touted back in July, and GOV.UK’s website, which we showcased in October, also won a Black Pencil.

A fourth Black Pencil went to the Olympic Cauldron, Heatherwick Studio's stunning creation that kept the flame alight during the the 2012 Games.
