Student Design

SPARK STUDENT DESIGN AWARD HEADQUARTERS

Spark Student Design is one of a series of exciting awards created to encourage great design and designers. We invite you to join the Spark Community and enter your best designs. Only students at university-level and their teachers may apply, from accredited universities, PolyTechnics, design or advanced trade schools. Come on in, join the fun!

The next entry period is timed for the Spring semester design students with a great design to show the world.

The  Spring and Fall/Winter Spark Student  Awards are focused on work that is usually in the idea stage, and are the only home for student entries.

Spark Student is for any discipline of design. This includes graphic design, product, user experience, motion, architecture, interiors, medical and many others.

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

Timeframe
Because this competition is only for student work, Spark Student events are timed to facilitate entries from the main school semesters. That means we have a set of deadlines for both Spring and Fall semesters. Finalists from both competitions are judged by a live jury and winners chosen.

Important notes: work may be entered that was created anytime during the last 24 months. Student entries must be provable via student ID or copy of degree to win a Spark. All fees—primary entry fee and finalist fee, must be paid in full to be certified as an official Spark Finalist or Winner.

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

Spark Student is entirely “virtual.” That is, it is entered and conducted online, over the Spark website. No designs are delivered to Spark. However, Spark will continue offering the opportunity to have a poster printed and delivered to the jury, at extra cost. (Send a note to posters @ sparkawards.com if interested.)

If your work passes the Phase 1 review (and your Finalist fee is paid), it will be included in Phase 2 and the live judging.

(Special note to South Korean entrants: please note that all Spark emails are blocked by Naver, Nate and Hanmail. Do not register with these addresses, because we cannot communicate with you– for example, to tell you that you won! Use another service– Gmail or Hotmail works fine.)

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: IF YOU ARE ASKING SPARK A QUESTION, ALWAYS PUT YOUR NAME, DESIGN NAME AND ORGANIZATION IN THE EMAIL. IF YOU HAVE AN ENTRY OR REGISTRATION PROBLEM, INCLUDE A SCREENSHOT OF THE ERROR MESSAGE.
