Who Can Enter?

Who Can Enter the Spark Awards? You Can!

With many competition categories, it’s easy for designers to enter the Spark Awards. All designers, art directors, design firms and departments, ad agencies, marketing and branding practices, clients, manufacturers, student and non-professional or novice designers are welcome to compete, or to simply join the Spark Community.

Spark accepts and promotes all types of design. As you’ll see on our Category pages, this ranges from product design to graphics and branding, transportation design to brick and mortar architecture.

We try to keep Spark relevant in our rapidly changing environment by testing and exploring the expressions and technologies of new design media. Our latest focus is on five new Spark Categories: WEAR, for functional textiles, garments and wearables; Cause, for the social good; Proto, for prototype designs that seek funding; Maker, to promote great design and scalability and PackIt, to highlight sustainable, innovative packaging. Exciting fun stuff. Got some? Enter today!

Entries are accepted for any designs launched from January 2000 forward and a design may be entered multiple times (each year we host completely new Juries). Each entrant may enter as many designs as they wish and even in different categories (for example, in both the Health and Product categories).
