Exciting news–The Spark Awards, are now four competitions. “Spark:Communication,” is focused on 2-D design: Graphic, Package, Brand, UX and Interface, Advertising, Motion and Environmental/signage design, among others.–all for work that has been produced, printed, published, realized or in pre-production. This competition does not include design work in the idea or proposal stage, which now can be found in a dedicated competition called Spark:Concept. All competitions continue Spark’s core mission and Criteria.
Thanks for your interest in Spark. Please tell your friends—there’s a new home for Good Design!
The New Spark Awards will allow for greater focus and dedicated resources for each type of design. Spark is international in scope and accepts entries from all designers, everywhere.
The New Spark competitions will continue on the annual schedule established in 2007, with a Call For Entry April 1, and final deadline and Jury in late Fall. The Celebration will follow in January.
The Competition will be judged along the same lines as earlier Spark events—same Criteria, Categories, website and branding. Spark is a two-phase competition. There are two pricing tiers–one for companies and professional designers, and a second for NGO’s, students and non-profit organizations (Status must be provable with to win a Spark).
