Last call for the Best Awards

Thinking about entering this year's Best Awards? There's just a few more weeks to get in before the cutoff.

Best Awards 2012Nominations are being accepted in the following categories: graphic, interactive, product, spatial, best effect and Ngā Aho, a new award celebrating 'Aotearoa-ness'. 

The Best Effect Award is also rearing its head for the first time and will be judged not by designers but by business, based on business metrics.

Design work from any of the categories is eligible for the award, which can be entered by the client organisation or by the client in conjunction with a design practice.

Entrants will be asked to demonstrate how the results of a particular design project or programme of design work has had a positive effect on an important organisation success measure, proving the value of ROI.
