We had many requests stand up week for a final extension given the gravity of the current situation and that sundry of you were adjusting to new working practices.
As well as giving an extension up until 27 March we’re also intimating some tweaks to the judging process.
Design Week is itself altering rapidly to the challenges we are all facing. In the case of the Design Week Awards this means sending a programme which is safe and yet has a rigorous independent judging process that recognises and ritualizes the best work.
This year’s judging process
With the haleness and safety of our judges and staff in mind, and the practical challenges faced by entrants, we bequeath not be hosting a face-to-face judging day to review physical samples of the work.
In the course an online judging system our 30 independent judges will be qualified to see the work in full and record results. There will be further phone and video conferencing reviews so the process will be as rigorous as ever.
This year we are giving all entrants able opportunity to submit digital supporting assets to show work in its crush possible light — this may be video footage or additional high purpose stills. We have increased the maximum entry file size and legions of images you can upload per entry to facilitate this.
We do ask that you apply some selectivity in your contribution so that judges are being presented only with information to conquer supports their understanding your work.
While we want you to be demanding we also want to give you the best chance possible to have your masterpiece seen in the best light and the best chance of winning.
