SitePoint is proud to be sponsoring the first ever Annual Design Awards.
In a refreshing change of tack, these awards won’t offer hundreds of categories, or set exorbitant entry fees so that only the big guys can afford to enter. These awards set the simple goal of discovering and celebrating outstanding talents in the design world. It’s open to everyone around the world, from large corporate professionals to work-from-home freelancers. And just to give you that warm fuzzy feeling, The Annual Design Awards are being held in aid of Cancer Research UK.
The team behind this promising new global event is aiming to increase awareness and recognition of outstanding visual communication – and that’s where you come in. Entries close on April 22, 2010 and nominees are announced one month later (May 22, 2010), so you’ve got plenty of time to find your muse. Use the promotional code SITEP22ADA during the entry process and you’ll receive a 25% discount. Please note, to take advantage of this special ‘friends of SitePoint’ discount rate you will need to enter before December 25, 2009. Just think of it as a Christmas present!
Need some motivation?
How about the fact that all award winners will be featured in numerous magazines and blogs, reach over 1 million designers, and have their work judged by some of the best in the business? Every entrant in the Annual Design Awards will feature in the new Designers Directory, have the chance to feature in the yearly book that will be published to showcase the best designs, and have access to a designers’ notice board on the design awards site (where designers can promote their business, special offers, job vacancies and much more). Go here for even more motivation, and a full list of the benefits of entering.
Don’t forget, you can keep up with all the latest news by following the Annual Design Awards on twitter.
