Best Awards 2014: Entries now open

Designers Institute of New Zealand is calling all graphic, interactive, product and spatial designers to enter their top designs for this year’s Best Awards.

Esteemed judges from both New Zealand and across the ditch will decide the winners of the coveted design pins.

Speaking to the institute's commitment to up and coming designers, DINZ has invited three design schools to each enter two students asking them to create a promotional campaign for the awards.

DINZ CEO Cathy Veninga tells us there’s a really strong involvement in getting Australian designers to enter this year.

“We enter many of our design awards overseas, so we're encouraging our neighbours to do the same. We’re really putting a spotlight on Australasian design. I'm expecting a lot of fabulous entries.”

Idealog has been covering the most interesting people, businesses and issues from the fields of innovation, design, technology and urban development for over 12 years. And we're asking for your support so we can keep telling those stories, inspire more entrepreneurs to start their own businesses and keep pushing New Zealand forward. Give over $5 a month and you will not only be supporting New Zealand innovation, but you’ll also receive a print subscription and a copy of the new book by David Downs and Dr. Michelle Dickinson, No. 8 Recharged (while stocks last).
