Featured Competition: “Your Best Work” Design Awards from HOW

Do you (and/or your design team) design consistent, effective, boundary-pushing, original creative projects? HOW design recently announced a competition that considers your body of work rather than a single project in the Your Best Work design awards competition.

HOW is asking for your top five projects from the past two years for a chance to be profiled in HOW’s 2012 Creativity issue.

“This is your chance to prove to clients and peers that you’re no one-trick pony, and you’ve got the creative chops to do powerful work time and again,” states HOW on its Website.

Read details below:

Your Best Work Design Awards
THE DEADLINE All entries must be submitted no later than 11:59 p.m. EST December 1, 2011.


THE CATEGORIES Work should be entered in one of two categories:

  1. Freelancers/Small Firms/Small In-House Groups = teams with no more than 5 designers
  2. Large Firms/Agencies/Large In-House Groups = teams with more than 5 designers

THE PRIZES Two “Best of Show” winners will each receive a 4-page feature in the May 2012 issue of HOW magazine, which is also distributed to all attendees of HOW Design Live. Ten merit winners will be included in the issue and featured on the HOW website.

All winners will receive a free Design Insider Membership, which includes a year’s subscription (or extention) to HOW magazine, as well as 3 free competition entry coupons to use in any HOW competition of your choosing. You will also receive an icon to post on your website announcing your winning status.

SUBMITTING ENTRIES Entries must be submitted online in PDF form. The size of the file must not exceed 2MB. You may use the provided InDesign template to create your entry or you may create a template of your own, but all templates must include the required information for each of your five projects: entry title, release date, project description, creative team and client. You may use multiple pages for each project if needed.
