Spark Graphic Design Award Headquarters

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

Spark Graphic Design Award is part of a series of exciting competitions created to promote great design and designers. The world’s greatest designs have a home at Spark.

We invite everyone to participate—professional designers, art directors, graphic designers, package, publication & print designers, teachers, design firms, manufacturers, institutions, ad agencies and entrepreneurs—anyone with an effective communications solution.

These Awards are focused on Graphic Design—Graphics, Branding, Environmental, Signage design and related fields. This competition is for working professional designers. Student entries are in the Spark Student competitions.

This award is for work that is either published, produced, created on spec or as part of a proposal, or is scheduled for production. Concepts are also welcome, if clearly identified as such. All Spark events are international in scope and accept entries from all designers, everywhere.

Process Synopsis
This award is judged along the same lines as other Spark disciplines—same Criteria, website and registration system.

There are two phases of Spark, each with a separate fee. In Phase 1, Spark Graphic is entirely “virtual.” That is, it is entered, conducted and judged online, over the Spark website. No materials, boards or designs are delivered to Spark in Phase 1. If your work passes the Phase 1 review and becomes a Finalist, after payment of the Finalist fee it will be included in Phase 2 and the live judging. For Phase 2 we do ask for physical examples of the entries– poster, brochures, books, cards, etc.  You will need to ship these to the jury site. (Shipping destination & timing to be announced.)

Sub-categories include, but are not limited to:
Print & Publishing
Branding, Identity, Logos
Marketing Communications
Direct Mail
Wayfinding, informational kiosks & terminals
Concepts & Pre-production

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