Welcome to Spark, Product Designers

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

The Spark Product 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 Spark Product Awards are focused on products, industrial design and related 3-D fields. This competition is for working professional designers. Student entries are in the Spark Concept & Student competition >HERE

Spark Product is for work that is either built, produced, created on spec or as part of a proposal, or is scheduled for production.

This competition continues Spark’s mission, criteria and categories. All Spark events are international in scope and accept entries from all designers, everywhere.

We believe design is a critical tool to accelerate human progress. Our Criteria are modern and compelling. If you or your organization create great designs, don’t miss the opportunity to compete in these important events.

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

TIMEFRAME
The Spark Product 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 2. The Spark Awards Winners will be announced shortly afterwards.

PROCESS SYNOPSIS
The Product Design Competition is judged along the same lines as other Spark competitions—same Criteria, Categories, website and registration system.

In Phase 1, Spark Product 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!
