Creative Conscience Awards 2019

 

The Creative Conscience Awards welcome projects by students and graduates (of up to two years) from any creative discipline. The deadline for 2018 has now passed, but we’ll be launching the 2019 awards at the end of this year. The awards are the perfect opportunity to push your curiosity and create the change you want to see in the world. You can enter the awards solo or in a team (of up to six), and can choose your own issue to tackle or work from one of our exciting briefs.

Example Briefs

Our awards scheme searches for exciting projects with a focus on social impact. You can enter anything you like, as long as the project fits into one of our Impact Themes. We also have some exciting briefs that give a starting point if you feel you need it, tackling some of the most relevant issues that our world faces today. This years deadlines have passed, but feel free to download the briefs for your own personal projects, or to start working early on an entry for the 2019 awards. Shortlisted projects are judged by a panel of industry experts based on your creative approach and the potential impact of your project.

Open Brief Background

If you have an issue that you are passionate about, that you believe could help change the world in a positive way you could enter it under our Open Brief. You could identify something that isn’t working for you about the world around you and look for a solution. We’re interested however big or small your ideas are. We are looking for solutions and provocations that will call people to action and can lead to genuine impact. Projects can be conceptual or have the potential to develop into real life-changing solutions. The themes you might wish to explore can be broad and varied. Past projects have included design solutions for food waste, humanitarian aid, education, water shortage, energy efficiency, inclusivity, campaigns & products against FGM, bullying, inequality, poverty, homelessness, child abuse, over-consumption, mental illness, urban living – to list just a few subject areas.

Open Brief Challenge

The Open Brief is your chance to create a project that deals with any issue you’re passionate about solving. Identify something that isn’t working in the world around you and look for a solution, however big or small. We’re looking for solutions and provocations that have the potential to provoke action and have a genuine impact. Projects can be conceptual or have the potential to develop into real life-changing solutions. Past projects have included creative solutions for food waste, humanitarian aid, education, water shortage, energy efficiency, inclusivity, bullying, inequality, poverty, homelessness, child abuse, over-consumption, mental illness, urban living and much more.

Mental Health Background

Negative experiences happen in all of our lives: difficulties with work or finances, the breakdown of a relationship, overwhelming family responsibilities, or a significant setback for example. Mental health can affect anyone. There are many ways we can cope with mental illness: establishing and maintaining relationships, discussing our issues and taking action when possible, however there are stigmas surrounding mental health that we unfortunately need to tackle.

Mental Health Challenge

How can you use your creative skills to aid those with mental health issues? If your life or the life of those around you has been touched by mental health issues, then use these experiences as possible entry points into the brief and as a means of research to explore potential routes and solutions. The challenge really is boundless in however you want to approach it, all we ask is that the outcome is optimistic and empowering towards the audience. Let’s open up and tackle this issue head on to create some real positive change in the world. Here are some useful links to start you off: Movember Onemindinstitute CentreforglobalmentalhealthMind.org.uk

Equality Background

Equality is a human right. Both men and women are entitled to live with dignity and with freedom from want and from fear. Whether this be gender equality as a precondition for advancing development and reducing poverty: empowered women contribute to the health and productivity of whole communities, improving the prospects for the next generation. Or more general human rights for minorities, those under threat of being suppressed or living in fear because of who they are or what they believe.

Equality Challenge

Can you think of a way to change current behaviours and inspire people to understand the value brought by treating everyone equally? You may simply want to raise awareness, or perhaps you can think of a way to actively change human behaviour and understanding. Here are some useful links to start you off: Global Goals Rightsinfo Cause2create Creativeequals

Refugee Crisis Background

This brief has been set in partnership with Help Refugees The most basic requirements for refugees to regain their independence are housing, language and employment. Without housing, people become destitute; without the ability to speak the local language, it is very difficult to get a job; without employment independence is almost impossible.

Refugee Crisis Challenge

How can we creatively support the empowerment of refugees in host countries, and improve their access to opportunities? Local language: classes can be expensive and restrictive in terms of the amount that you can study, when and where. What creative solutions could help with this? Employment: refugee unemployment in the UK is 50%, and many refugees are overqualified for the jobs they take. How can we find creative ways to increase people’s chances of finding meaningful work quickly? Integration: how can we build bridges with local communities? Can you find ways to keep community at the heart of these proposals? Empowerment: Can you consider innovative ways for Help Refugees to raise more funds to allow us to do more for empowerment projects? *96p from every pound raised already goes straight to our projects on the ground.

Conscious Consumption Background

We can’t continue to consume and buy ‘stuff’ at our current rate without serious consequences. ‘The story of stuff’ tells us why.

Conscious Consumption Challenge

The Conscious Consumption brief is an opportunity to create solutions to help re-direct our worlds trajectory towards self-destruction. This could explore themes on not just what we consume, but how and why. Where do the things we consume come from, and what are their impact e.g. environmental, psychological and/or societal. What methods could we use to design products that are sustainable and have a minimal or even positive ecological impact? And what would these products be? How could mindsets be shifted (especially in first world countries) away from misguided, and damaging purchasing habits? Why do we consume, and what are the often overlooked motivations for consumption – and are there ways we can nurture or redirect these energies? The solutions to these questions should aim to educate, inspire, excite and encourage new behaviours, so we can consciously consume.

Examples

  • Creating materials/products that do not cause harm to us and our environment (e.g. cradle to cradle)
  • Designing new systems (Donut and sharing economies are examples of this)
  • How can we educate and inform people about their choices in a fun, exciting and positive way.

At the ceremony you’ll get to mingle with creatives and professionals from complimentary organisations as well as other winners.

Student Lighting Competition Light & Culture

The IESNYC is celebrating the 19th year of the Student Lighting Competition. This year’s theme, LIGHT & CULTURE, challenges students to construct a three-dimensional study exploring the role of light in rituals, events, or rites of passage. Light can often be a critical element in a religious or national celebration, like fireworks on the Fourth of July, a lifetime milestone, like a unity candle at a wedding, or a daily observance, like a sun salutation. Light & Culture allows each individual to expand upon their own experiences of light and how it contributes to culture.

Students currently enrolled in a NYC-based college or university are eligible. 
Prizes include $2,000 for the first place winner, as well as $1,000 for the second place winner, and $500 for third.

About the IESNYC Student Competition

The IESNYC Student Lighting Competition is dedicated to our founder, Patricia DiMaggio. As an NYC educator and past president of IESNYC, we uphold Patricia’s goals of education, community, and friendly competition. Having grown from 8 students in 2000 to over 200 students today, it is a legacy which will continue to grow with all your support.

One of the goals of the IESNYC is to promote education and greater awareness about the importance of lighting and the Student Competition is one of the contributors towards these efforts. Since 2000, they have invited students from New York City Art and Design schools to participate in a city wide design competition. The competition empowers students to explore light as an art form, demonstrate light as a stimulus, and prove light as a valuable medium. Every year, students in lighting, architecture, interior design, art, product design, photography and electrical engineering programs have submitted projects, resulting in a diverse showcase of ideas and interpretations on a single theme. The IESNYC Student Competition has been incorporated into the curriculum lighting classes in several area schools and has piqued an interest in lighting design of close to a thousand design students to date.

CORRIDOR REUSE DESIGN CHALLENGE

12.03.18 full brief released

02.04.19 final submission

Two $2,500 prizes – 1 winning student team, 1 winning professional team

A competition to explore innovative interventions of underutilized spaces.

The Corridor Reuse Design Challenge is a competition to explore innovative interventions and design responses to one of the most typical and overlooked elements in large civic buildings — the corridor. Intended to serve as egress for large flows of people during concentrated periods of time (can you hear the school bell now?), corridors take up a large portion of a building’s footprint yet oftentime are forgotten.

The challenge invites creative thinkers to imagine the future life of school buildings and civic buildings that have outlived their original use. Adaptive building reuse is critical to the future development of communities and serves as an opportunity for new ideas and uses.

The competition will be grounded in Bok, a repurposed vocational school in South Philadelphia where classrooms have been converted into creative maker’s spaces, small offices, and studios, but the massive 14’ wide corridors remain unchanged. These spaces are the core of the building and have great potential to enhance community, connectivity, productivity, and interaction. We are challenging designers to reimagine the use of underutilized corridors – the ‘streets’ of a buildings.

* Registration is free and non-committal. Registering guarantees that you will receive the full competition brief and all updates

Design that Educates Awards 2019

DESIGN THAT EDUCATES AWARDS 2019

The Design that Educates Awards (DtEA) investigate the educational potential of architecture and design. The ability to communicate the implemented solutions and features is the main theme of the awards. Such an informational layer of design and architecture provides an important (yet not fully explored) opportunity for a dialog between the user and the designer. The result—a new type of learning environment—provides a space for the exploration of both the design itself and its relation to the vaster context. Each year, the esteemed panel of judges will select the most outstanding examples. The objective of the awards is to recognize, showcase, and promote globally the best ideas and implementations of architecture and design that educate.
