Only student entries may be submitted at the student price. If you wish to be judged as a professional, you will be charged the professional entry fee.
If your entry did not win last year, but still meets all the other criteria (including two year distribution window), it may be resubmitted.
Designs may be entered in multiple categories, but each entry must be purchased and submitted separately. Awards will not be given to the same design in more than one product category (i.e., Medical & Health and Home & Bath).
The jury and/or organizers have the right to move entries among categories to the benefit of the entry.
Products must have been placed into distribution between March 2015 and March 2017. This means the product must be available for sale, in its final form to its intended end users, through normal sales channels during that period (except in the case of the Social Impact Design category, where products often are given as part of an aid effort or donation program).
Student entries must have been submitted to the school between March 2015 and March 2017.
Design concepts must not be scheduled for production. If you are submitting a Design Concept, it must have been finalized or submitted to the client between March 2015 and March 2017 and clearly indicated as a concept. You may enter a concept in any of the categories.
