The Design Awards Deadline Has Been Extended to Mar. 17!

March 10, 2017



"LAX - Data Cloud," Moment Factory, 2014


Rest easy on your March break—the deadline for entry to the 2017 Design Awards has been extended to next Friday, March 17.


We're seeing so many wonderful pieces come in to the office and digitally, so keep them coming! We have categories across traditional graphic design, editorial design, promotional design, typography design, craft and many more. 


Did you know that for the first time we also have 19 Interactive Design categories? In case you haven't heard, we've taken our former Interactive Awards and reassigned it into our Design and Advertising programs. 


When we launched the Interactive Awards 11 years ago, new media and digital applications were completely different from traditional advertising and design, and they were even executed by different firms. But today, creative work and suppliers are largely multidisciplinary. Splitting up the Interactive Awards allows us to celebrate different aspects of digital work—its design, or its campaign reach.


To get you inspired ahead of the deadline, let's revisit some of our winning Interactive Awards work that would be a great fit in the Interactive Design categories this year. You have another week to get your submissions together!
