Cause / Affect 09

Cause / Affect 09

Cause / Affect is a biennial graphic design competition which celebrates the work of designers and organizations who set out to positively impact our society.

Produced by AIGA San Francisco, this is a competition for do-gooders who do good work.

The details of the competition are simple: all work entered must promote or support social good.

And to qualify, work must have been produced between November 1, 2007 and June 19, 2009.

Winning work will be showcased at the cause/affect awards ceremony in July and displayed at the AIGA SF gallery through the summer.

Winning entrants will also be featured on the cause/affect site and a portion of any proceeds from the competition will be donated to a local non-profit organization.

The competition generated a tremendous amount of interest during its inaugural year in 2007, and this time out the organizers expect to receive a similarly enthusiastic response.

"We were staggered by the global interest the competition stimulated" said Brian Singer, AIGA SF President.

"We received entries from as far afield as Norway, the Netherlands and Singapore.

And this year, with excitement about the competition mounting, and the blogosphere clicking into high gear, we're expecting to see do-gooders flooding our offices with another batch of awe-inspiring work."
