SEED Awards for Excellence in Public Interest Design 2013

Design Corps and Social Economic Environmental Design (SEED) Network – in conjunction with the University of Minnesota College of Design – are pleased to announce the Third Annual SEED Awards for Excellence in Public Interest Design.

Recognizing design projects with exceptional social, economic, and environmental impact, the SEED Awards represent the forces needed to create truly sustainable projects and positive change in the world.

Through a competitive jury process, six projects will be selected and celebrated.

The 3rd SEED Awards for Excellence in Public Interest Design Now Open for Submissions

Three broad categories of projects that have been designed or redesigned for the public good will be considered:

  1. Products;
  2. Places; such as buildings, landscapes, and other environments
  3. Processes; such as services, systems, business practices, or public policies

Projects in progress or completed in the past three years anywhere in the world are eligible.

Student, professional, and DIY projects will be considered, including work undertaken by individuals, nonprofit entities, private firms, and universities.

Winning projects will receive a $1,000 honorarium and an all-expense-paid trip for one team representative to present at the annual Structures for Inclusion (SFI 13) conference, taking place 23-25 March, 2013 in Minneapolis. Winning projects will be featured in a forthcoming publication, The SEED Field Manual, and profiled online.
