Make design history. Submit your finest work by March 7.

365: AIGA Annual Design Competitions
For nearly a century, AIGA’s competitions have been among the most prestigious in the design world. The AIGA design competitions are authoritative, so if your work is selected, it becomes history. Through each annual selection, AIGA creates a definitive chronicle of outstanding design solutions, each demonstrating the process of designing, the role of the designer and the value of design. Selected entries will be added to the AIGA Design Archives online and the physical artifacts will be housed for posterity in the permanent archives of the Denver Art Museum.

Details for “365” and “50 Books/50 Covers”—which both close March 7—can be found at competitions.aiga.org. Don’t miss your chance to show off your best work—and take your place in design history.

All selections from the 2007 competitions can be seen online at designarchives.aiga.org. Members recently received 365: AIGA Year in Design 28, along with this year’s call for entries. And until February 22 you can view last year’s selections on display at the AIGA National Design Center gallery in New York City.
