Spark Awards 2008: A call for entries

WHAT: The Spark Awards are calling for entries. They are the world’s first multi-level design competition. The SparkAwards is a fresh, modern qualification system that recognizes new processes and technology and seeks to involve people and ideas from untapped sources. Designers from all levels and skill-sets are welcome, be they professional, novice or student.

They encourage and help designers to create design that makes a difference. This is good news for designers—AND for the users and consumers of design.

The SparkAwards are the new benchmark for design —encouraging new ways for people to really experience design—and participate—and improve our world.

WHO: Its open to all designers, art directors, design firms and departments, ad agencies, marketing and branding practices, clients, manufacturers and student or novice designers are welcome to join to. Spark accepts and promotes a wide range of design, designers and “creatives.” As you’ll see on their catagories page, this ranges from product design to advertising, digital animation to brick and mortar architecture. Professional Category admission is for designs launched on the market by May 2008 or no more than four years previously (from May 04). Students and novices (non-professionals) may enter each category, without their product being in production. (Proof of status required to win.) And each entrant may enter as many products as they wish.
