Apple is sponsoring the Design & Art Direction Awards (D&AD).

This annual event, which celebrates UK design and advertising, will be held at Earl's Court on May 30.

Co-sponsor Apple is staging a one-off product showcase on the night. Hosted by comedienne Ruby Wax, the D&AD will also feature Boy George as a guest DJ.

Nominations for 2001 have yet to be announced. Last year's awards, in London's Olympia, saw a panel of 200 judges whittle 17,283 entrants down to 103 nominations, and 40 overall winners.

Entries to the awards are now closed, however there's still time to book your place by filling in a downloadable PDF.
