Have An IDEA? Submit it & Win it!

Someone rightly said that Design is a mix of craft, science, storytelling, propaganda & philosophy. All it takes to tie all this up into a great presentation is a worthy platform. And that platform is the IDEA Design Awards. For over 30 years, IDEA has recognized design excellence in products, sustainability, interaction design, packaging, strategy, research and concepts. This year, it’s time for you to shine, it’s time for you to tell your story…. register here to enter the 2011 International Design Excellence Awards! Details inside…

The IDSA IDEA awards have been called “the Oscar’s of design” …and for good reason!

IDEA award winners are deemed such shining examples of design excellence that for the 2nd year in a row the Henry Ford will house IDEA winners in its private collection! This year Yanko Design is one of the Media Partners and want you to participate and WIN!

IDEA awards bring international recognition, accolades and attention in a climate where differentiation and a spotlight can make or break a design or a career.

The timelines and Fees can be found here, and the registration can be done here.

Here is a look at some 2010 IDEA Winners that were featured on Yanko Design.
