PRINT has announced its call for entries for the PRINT Awards 2020. Formerly known as the Regional Design Awards, the PRINT Awards has a fresh focus on global inclusion, new exclusive categories spotlighting design activism and the latest creative technology, and it continues to highlight talented student work.
In 1980, PRINT's Regional Design Awards competition was launched to show that outstanding design wasn't limited to New York City, and could be found throughout every region of the United States. Now, 40 years later, this prestigious awards program moves to recognize and celebrate outstanding design domestically and, for the first time, abroad.
This year, the PRINT Awards also launches a completely new category: PRINT Citizen Design Award. Designers have always been at the forefront of critical thinking around issues of social justice, community intervention, sustainability and human rights across issues and borders. This award, inspired by the dedication of designers to address vital causes this year, was added to recognize this work and celebrate design activism. To ensure that everyone can enter, this category has no entry fee nor any limit to the number of entries that can be submitted.
Winning entries in the PRINT Awards will be selected based on originality, innovation, execution and permanence, while the Citizen Design category will be based on originality, clarity, execution and impact.
The deadline for submissions is September 20, with a late deadline of October 16, 2020.
