Lifewater Series 9,  Pepsi Design & Innovation

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 categories and specialties. Sometimes, a design may even fit more than one area. 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. There are no rigid divisions—design types are listed here so a designer feels that their work is appropriate and welcome. We can have any number of winners—or none, in any given area. All depends on the work, and the design sensibility of jury. That’s why we work hard to find tough, fair and collegial judges. Any package design, in any media may be submitted, including designs previously submitted to Spark competitions.
