Contribute the best work you've done this year to AIGA Arizona's design archive and be entered to win Best of 2021 honors at Phoenix Design Week!
Your submissions will be presented in an online gallery and open for public voting during the week leading up to Phoenix Design Week (*end), from Monday, October 18 through Friday, October 22, 2021. The entry that receives the most votes will be announced as Best of 2021 at the end of the Phoenix Design Week (*end) virtual conference on Sunday, October 24. The AIGA AZ board of directors may also choose to award special recognition depending on the number of entries and votes received.
Afterwards, all entries become part of AIGA Arizona's permanent archive that was started in 2014 as an ongoing effort to catalog and chronicle the people and creativity that make up Arizona's vibrant design community. Learn more about the AIGA Arizona design archive.
The rules are easy: There is no entry fee – yay! The only requirements are (a) you must have been a resident of Arizona at the time the piece was created, (b) the project was first created between September 15, 2020 and October 15, 2021, and (c) there is a limit of 2 entries per person/firm (for items such as a brand project or a campaign, please submit multiple related executions as a single entry).
P.S. Save and send your physical entries, too!
Just because we’re going virtual with the Best Of gallery again this year doesn’t mean that we won’t eventually want to show a live exhibition again one day! Please save up and send us your physical samples for the permanent AIGA AZ collection – and if you get them to us before October 15, we may even feature you during the Phoenix Design Week (*end) conference, regardless whether your entry receives the most votes or not. Check the box for "physical artifact" in the form below to let us know it's on the way, then follow the delivery instructions in your submission confirmation email.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: OCTOBER 15, 2021
No matter who you are — individual designer, agency, in-house group, and students — we want to see and show off what you have been working on this year. Ready, set, go: show us YOUR best of 2021!
