The Design Green Project

There are so many great competitions available to young designers. I really wish I had more industry knowledge/training to get involved.

The Design Green Award is the first of its kind to honor and reward designers' creativity, from around the world, for their excellence in the disciplines of branding, print, packaging, environments, fashion, photography, art, and design green.

Creative Categories
Branding: Naming, identity, stationery packages, etc.
Print: Collateral, posters, magazines, etc.
Packaging: CDs, DVDs, boxes, bags, labels, etc.
Environments: Retail designs, exhibits, signage, etc.
Fashion: Couture, ready-to-wear, bags, shoes, etc.
Photography: Portraits, landscapes, etc.
Art: Paintings, illustrations, sculpture, etc.
Design Green: Eco-friendly designs.

The Design Green Project will also plant trees for every entry received. While I'm not a huge fan of this method of promotion (for various reasons I hope to expound on in the future), it is not to say that the gesture is without merit.
