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 by the physical entry, in person by the panel of judges. The digital file upload portion of the registration process is NOT how entries will be judged. It is solely for the display of winning entries on the design730.org site.
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.
No. Due to the large number of entries we receive each year, we can not return any work submitted.
