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. 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–everything is uploaded to the website.

It’s helpful to the judging process for you to clearly identify the sub-category(s) for your entry. Please see the examples below. Point this out clearly at the beginning of your submission descriptions.

Sub-categories include, but are not limited to: Print & Publishing, Branding, Identity, Logos, Graphics, Advertising, Marketing Communications, Collateral, Outdoor, Direct Mail, Wayfinding, Informational Kiosks & Terminals, Infographics, Illustration, Concepts & Pre-production (Packaging now has it’s own category, Package)

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

And Always Include the Essentials:
Project Objective
Project Results
Project Background
