SPARK:PRODUCT AWARD CATEGORIES

Spark Product includes all Product and Industrial Design

Spark has a very open entry system, for every possible type of design within the disciplines covered. Thus, we have listed a large number of categories. Sometimes, a design may even fit more than one category. Don’t worry about choosing the “best” one when registering. Everything is judged on its merits.

Designs are not judged within a category, but rather, in the context of our Criteria. There are no rigid divisions—categories are listed here so a designer feels that their work is appropriate and welcome. We can have any number of winners—or none in any given area. All depends on the work, and the design sensibility of jury. That’s why we work hard to find tough, fair and collegial judges.
