People don't always appreciate good design, as this year's Best Design Awards tagline (dreamed up by Special Group) goes. Ain't that the truth. Luckily, the Designers Institute does, and Best is back for 2013 with entries now open.
There've been a few changes, such as a new Colour Award for the Spatial discipline, specific subcategories within Graphic Design Arts, and reworked Graphics descriptions for both Environmental Graphics and Visual Communications.
And the Best Effect Award and Ngā Aho Award will be returning for their second year.
Get your entries in here by July 5. All work that has been commercially released by June 30, 2013 is eligible.
