SPARK HEALTH DESIGN AWARD HEADQUARTERS

 

Welcome to Spark, Health Designers!

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

The Spark Health Awards are part of a series of eight exciting competitions created to promote great design and designers. We invite you to join the Spark Community and enter your best designs. The world’s greatest designs have a home at Spark.

Spark Health is focused on health, wel-being and medical related designs. “This New Spark Design Award is focused on discovering and promoting innovation in health care devices, products, facilities and delivery systems, as well as salutogenic and preventive advancements.

According to Spark Director, Peter Kuchnicki, “The Spark Health Design Awards will shine a light on the fast-paced developments in all design aspects of health, medicine and well-being. This is clearly a mission-appropriate topic for Spark—and an Award we are proud to offer to our community.”

Spark Health is for work that is either built, produced, created on spec or as part of a proposal, or is scheduled for production. It continues Spark’s core Mission and basic Criteria. All Spark events are international in scope and accept entries from all designers, everywhere.

We invite everyone to participate—professional designers, art directors, architects, engineers, teachers, design firms, manufacturers, healthcare delivery systems, institutions, ad agencies and entrepreneurs—anyone with a great new health and welfare solution.

Timeframe
The Spark Health competition is currently accepting entries. The Standard Deadline is September 22, 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 Health Design Competition is judged along the same lines as other Spark competitions—same Criteria, Categories, website and registration system.

In Phase 1, Spark Health is entirely “virtual.” That is, it is entered, conducted and judged online. No materials, boards or designs are delivered to Spark 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—actual products, models, display boards, etc. You will need to ship these to the jury site. (Shipping destination announced in September.)

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