Just Send Us Your Best Work

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 areas. Sometimes, a design may fit more than one and are listed here so a designer feels that their work is appropriate and welcome.

Don’t worry about choosing the “best” one when registering. Everything is judged on its merits. Designs are judged in the context of our Criteria. We can have any number of winners—or none, in any given area. All depends on the quality of the work, and the design sensibility of jury. That’s why we work hard to find tough, fair and collegial judges.

Any civic innovation or design may be submitted in any media and from any field, including designs previously submitted to Spark competitions.
