Design for All competition

EIDD Design for All Europe award scheme

If you are a designer and have something to say about Design for All, now is your chance to express it with design!

EIDD Design for All Europe has launched the Design for All communications competition for posters, institutional videos and guerrilla marketing tools dedicated to capturing the differing perception of its work in the field of Design for All, i.e. design for social inclusion, all over the world and applying it for promotional purposes.

The EIDD Design for All Europe award scheme is endorsed by Icograda (International Council of Graphic Design Associations), while the organisational aspects are the responsibility of IIDD Design for All Italy and Design Center Bologna.

New deadline: 21 September 2008
