I’m the jury captain for the DIY category in the Core77 Design Awards this year, and I highly encourage you to enter! There is a fee, but it’s reduced for the DIY and student categories. The earlybird deadline is March 13. From their site:
Recognizing excellence in all areas of design enterprise, the Core77 Design Awards celebrates the richness of the design profession and its practitioners. For our second year, we present 17 categories of entry, providing designers, researchers and writers a unique opportunity to communicate the intent, rigor and passion behind their efforts. From client work to self-initiated projects, entrepreneurial to pro-bono engagements, we embrace a wide diversity of enterprise: commercial, cultural, social, environmental and discursive.
Both the Professional and Student Winners of each category will receive the C77DA trophy, and all honorees will be published in the Awards Gallery, Core77 and the awards publication, and celebrated at our New York event. Be part of the most inclusive and celebratory design awards platform of the digital age.
