It’s that time of year again, time to try for the glory of being recognized by your design peers in one of 3 (that’s right, 3!) AIGA Design Competitions. Think your work has the chops?

50 Books/50 Covers

It went away, and the people spoke. Now, it’s back with an extended deadline.

The “AIGA 50 Books/50 Covers” competition extends a legacy that began more than 90 years ago, celebrating the best current work in book and book cover design as chosen by a distinguished jury of design peers. The selections become part of the AIGA Design Archives, join the physical archives at the Denver Art Museum and Columbia University’s Rare Book and Manuscript Collection at the Butler Library, and are exhibited in a traveling exhibition that begins at the AIGA National Design Center, in New York.

Submissions must be received by March 31 (late entry deadline is April 21). Enter now!

365: Design Effectiveness

It takes more than good looks to make a design effective, and AIGA will be awarding honors this year to design work that’s both aesthetically pleasing and effective at solving challenges. We won’t be asking complicated questions about categories—you just need to identify the media—but we will ask you to wax poetic about the effectiveness of your submitted work.

The selections from the “AIGA 365 | Design Effectiveness” competition exemplify the most effective current work in communication design as chosen by a distinguished jury of design peers. The selections become part of the AIGA Design Archives, join the physical archives at the Denver Art Museum and are exhibited in a traveling exhibition that begins at the AIGA National Design Center in New York.

Submissions must be received by March 31 (late entry deadline is April 21). Enter now!

Making the Case

You know from experience that good design is effective design. But how do you prove it?

Making the Case, a brand new competition, is your opportunity to show not what you make but the way you think—through case studies outlining your brilliant strategies. AIGA provides the structure to create case studies, you contribute the content, and everyone in the profession wins. A discerning jury will identify the case studies that demonstrate the value of design in a clear, compelling and accessible way. The winning case studies will be published on AIGA.org, serving as an effective tool to explain the power of design to clients, students, peers and the public.

Submissions must be received by March 31 (late entry deadline is April 21). Enter now!
