No. However, members get a pretty big discount on the entry fee and it’s simple to join. Just visit aiga.org/join.
Yes. Multiple entries from the same company/designer are permitted. Just make sure to submit the project details, payment and include the confirmation forms when submitting each entry.
All submissions are judged through a digital portal by the panel of judges. The files uploaded to the registration form will NOT be judged. It is solely for the display of winning entries on the design730.org site, only the files uploaded through the file request link will be judged.
Interactive entries (websites, apps, etc.) are the only exception to this and will be viewed via the link provided during registration.
Judges are tasked with selecting entries that are both aesthetically pleasing and effective at solving design challenges.
The number of winners in each category may vary from year to year depending on the caliber of work submitted. In addition to the winners in each category, each judge will select one (1) Judges’ Choice (3 in total), then collectively select one (1) Best in Show.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have switched to a 100% digital competition for 2021. We will no longer be accepting physical submissions.
AIGA Cleveland is honored to host the biennial competition for the Cleveland design community through the generous support of our partners.
