The 2019 SEGD Global Design Awards, the only international awards program focused on user experiences in the built environment, officially opened for entries.
The SEGD Global Design Awards have set the standard of excellence for environmental graphic design and experiential graphic design for over 30 years-honoring design work that connects people to place by providing direction, content and compelling experiences in public spaces-since 1987.
“The SEGD Global Design Awards are the only awards exclusively for experiential graphic design,” says Clive Roux, CEO of SEGD. “That means your projects will be reviewed by jury experts in your field like Lance Wyman, Lee Skolnick, Refik Anadol and this year’s Jury Chair, Kathy Fry.”
The multidisciplinary SEGD Global Design Awards jurors evaluate submissions on criteria that includes: connecting people to place, creating a memorable user experience and solving the client’s objective or design challenge. The jury will be composed of nine highly respected practitioners, from around the world who represent a range of design disciplines.
The seven entry categories reflect the core practice areas of Experiential Graphic Design: Digital Experience Content, Exhibition, Interactive Experience, Placemaking and Identity, Public Installation, Strategy/Research/Planning and Wayfinding. Honor and Merit design award winners will be chosen from submissions in each category. A Best of Show Award will be chosen from among the Honor awards and a Sylvia Harris Award winner will be selected from all submissions for a project which exemplifies design for the public good in honor of the legacy of Sylvia Harris, founder of Citizen Research & Design.
The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2019. Submissions will be accepted with late fees through February 14, 2019.
