“Grafik Design Awards 2010 Launches to Celebrate Stars of UK Graphic Design Grafik Magazine, the UK’s only monthly magazine devoted entirely to graphic design is to launch its own awards scheme. The first Grafik Design Awards is open for entries at www.awards.grafikmag.com with a closing date of 31 January 2010. The awards event itself will take place 29 April 2010.
The Grafik Design Awards launches as the only UK awards dedicated solely to graphic design. The judging panel is made up of a combination of respected designers who represent a variety of disciplines and non-UK designers and non-designers who have a great understanding of the graphic design industry. Judges are: ANGHARAD LEWIS, WIM CROUWEL, NICK ROOPE, EMILY KING, EVA RUCKI, PETER SAVILLE, CAROLINE ROBERTS, BEN PARKER, KATE MOROSS, SARA DE BONDT, PHIL BAINES and MARINA WILLER.
Entry for one piece of work costs £50 and £25 for additional entries thereafter with a free three month subscription to Grafik magazine included in the entry fee. There are no categories; any work that is graphic-related and represents the broad spectrum of talent in the UK graphic design industry will be considered. It is open to all: individual designers, design groups, students, artists or companies. A total of ten projects will receive an award, with a coveted Grafik Design Awards Trophy also being awarded to ‘Best Newcomer’ to be judged and awarded by Peter Saville, and ‘Best Studio’ to be judge and awarded by Wim Crowel.”
This sounds like a pretty remarkable opportunity to get your work (if you live in the UK) in front of an amazing panel of judges. Thank you for the note Richard.
