European Design Awards (ED-Awards) 2013 – Call for Entries

The Call for entries for the European Design Awards (ED-Awards) 2013 has recently been announced.

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.

Gold, Silver and Bronze award winners will be announced for each entry category. Some special prizes will also be announced. An Award ceremony will be held in 2013.

European Design Awards 2013 – Celebrating Creative Brilliance

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

Here are three reasons why the ED-Awards are the best of their kind, according to their organizer:

  • The ED-Awards boast the most qualified jury in Europe, composed of representatives from the leading European design magazines. They are design journalists and critics, whose job is to recognise and promote the best of communication design internationally.
  • 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 jury members themselves come from 15 different countries.
  • The ED-Awards receive the widest publicity in the design awards field. Agencies and designers who excel here, get the best coverage available. The reason is simple: the ED-Awards are based on a network of design media.

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