News Blackout – D&AD Winner
Carlos Cortés wins a New Blood Award from D&AD. His (and collaborator Andrea Molero-Cuartin’s) winning project ‘News Blackout’ took censorship and the media as their theme.
‘Newspapers are the cornerstones of freedom of speech; unfortunately they often are regarded as relics of the past. We decided to let the world know what happens without Newspapers.’

A D&AD Pencil is recognised the world over as a shining symbol of the very highest creative achievement. It can’t get much better than that. As well as the Professional Awards, D&AD aims to cultivate new talent, ensuring the next generation of creatives gets off to a flying start. Winning a D&AD New Blood Award puts people under 24 on the path to the brightest of creative futures with the ultimate industry leg-up.
