Recognizing excellence in all areas of design enterprise, the Core77 Design Awards celebrates the richness of the design profession and its practitioners. We present 18 categories of entry providing designers and researchers a unique opportunity to communicate the intent, rigor and passion behind their efforts. From client work to self-initiated projects and entrepreneurial 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, across the Core77 online network. Be part of the most inclusive and celebratory design awards platform of the digital age.
Our 23 categories range the full spectrum of the design industry, from the consumer-targeted, to the impact-driven, to the academic.
Offering a truly global perspective on design, distributed Jury Captains assigned to the 18 awards categories will pick local team members who are also experts in their category to join them in the jury process.
Designers are great at showing and telling, so we give them with the opportunity to share their “real story” (beyond the customary jpegs and text) with the jury through self-directed, honest video testimonials.
Recognizing design as a team sport, the Core77 Design Award serves as a DIY mold for a trophy so that teams can cast facsimiles for their collaborators, clients and staff.
This honor is decided by the broader design community after the jury has selected the honorees. There is a winner in each category and the project with the most votes is crowned the grand prize winner.
Launched in 1995, Core77 serves a devoted global audience of design professionals, corporations, students, enthusiasts and fans. Core77 publishes articles, discussion forums, resources, book reviews and event calendars.
