European Design Awards – ED-Awards – 2012

The 2012 European Design Awards – ED-Awards – are closing for entries by the end of February. There’s still time to submit your works.

The European Design Awards is the comprehensive annual awards organization celebrating the best of graphic design, illustration and digital design in Europe. A joint effort by 15 communication design magazines from across the continent, the ED-Awards is a brilliant way to publicize your work on an international level.

All designers living or working within Europe may participate. Designers in Europe may submit work done for clients outside Europe.

Enter Europe’s Best Publicized Design Awards

The ED-Awards are truly a pan-European competition. Last year submissions came from 29 different European countries (with the top country submitting less than 20% of the total number) and winners came from 21 countries (with the top country achieving about 25% of total prizes).

The ED-Awards receive the widest publicity in the design awards field. Agencies and designers who excel here, receive the best coverage available. The reason is simple: the ED-Awards are based on a network of design media, i.e. the means of communication themselves.

Entries are being accepted in 33 distinctive categories including all kinds of graphic design, printed and interactive works. Gold, silver and bronze awards will be awarded in all categories.

All award winners (gold, silver and bronze) will be published in the ED-Awards catalog and on the ED-Awards website.

Gold and silver award winners will be invited to receive a trophy and/or a diploma on stage during the ED-Awards ceremony in Helsinki in 2012.

Entry Fee

The cost per submission is 120 euro (+23% VAT). There is also a volume discount for 5 or more submissions (96 euro/submission).
