SPARK CONCEPT & STUDENT SCHEDULE

Because concept design entries are often student work, Spark Concept events are timed to facilitate entries from the main school semesters. That means we have a set of deadlines for both Spring and Fall semesters.

Spring entries will be gathered from January until June, and then will go into a phase 1, finalist judging in late June. Fall semester entries begin August 1 and deadline in early October, when Fall Finalists are selected. Following that, all Spring and Fall Finalists are then gathered and are judged together in the Phase 2 live judging at the Autodesk Design Gallery in San Francisco.

Pro-level entrants may enter at any time, Spring or Fall. For the Concept Pro schedule, scroll down this page, to below the student schedules.
