Spark Graphic



Welcome to Spark, Graphic Designers
Spark’s Eighth Annual Official Call For Entry is live. Come on in, join the fun!

The Spark Graphic Awards are part of a series of eight exciting competitions created to promote great design and designers. The world’s greatest designs have a home at Spark.

We invite everyone to participate—professional designers, art directors, teachers, design firms, manufacturers, institutions, ad agencies and entrepreneurs—anyone with an effective communications solution.

The Spark Graphic Awards are focused on communication design—Graphics, Packaging, Branding, Environmental/signage design and related fields. This competition is for working professional designers. Student entries are in the Spark Concept & Student competition.

Spark Graphic is for work that is either published, produced, created on spec or as part of a proposal, or is scheduled for production. All Spark events are international in scope and accept entries from all designers, everywhere.

The Spark Graphic competition is currently accepting entries. The Standard Deadline is September 23, and the Late Deadline is October 10, 2014. Finalists will send their work or displays to Spark from October 14-25. Judging will take place November 1. The Spark Awards Winners will be announced shortly afterwards.

Process Synopsis
The Graphic Design competition is judged along the same lines as other Spark competitions—same Criteria, Categories, website and registration system.

In Phase 1, Spark Graphic is entirely “virtual.” That is, it is entered, conducted and judged online, over the Spark website. No materials, boards or designs are delivered to Spark Graphic in Phase 1. If your work is adjudged a Finalist, it will be included in Phase 2. For Phase 2 we do ask for physical examples of the entries– poster, brochures, books, cards, etc. You will need to ship these to the jury site. (Shipping destination will be announced in September.)

The Jury will see and judge from your entry materials, images, videos, descriptions and questionnaire answers. Pick your best shots!
