The Brand New Awards 2012 Juried Competition

UnderConsideration is inviting all professionals and students to enter the Brand New Awards (BNAs) 2012 juried competition, focused on logo and identity design. The BNAs reward the most successful collaborations between a client and their designer, design firm, brand consultancy, or internal creative team in 2012.

As a response to other award formulas, past and present, the BNAs strive to provide a competition that places as much importance on concept and execution as it does toward strategy and business decisions by focusing on the work itself, the process, and the client’s involvement.
