AIGA Announces Annual Design Competitions for 2023 YearRead More
Because so much work is shared through social media and different design platforms, it's easy to think that there is less of a role for design competitions. Historically, competitions were THE place where work was largely seen for the first time, as well as celebrated. With studios and individual designers having comparable access to getting their work seen, design competitions are put in a slightly different role of providing a critical look at the year in design. The 365: AIGA Year in Design competition provides the opportunity to filter, evaluate, and parse what projects stood out, what projects proved influential, and what amazing things fell off the radar and deserve a bigger platform. For all of us on the jury, we want to see the most interesting work so that we can create the most provocative picture of what the past year looked like. Surprise us so we can surprise you!

The 365 competition has been the go-to-showcase for everyone—client and practitioner—to view incredible work with incredible stories, its absence has been a major loss . . . and so its revival will be a major boon.
