Short description

The UCDA Design Awards 2021 now is calling for entries!

The UCDA Design Awards 2021 recognize the best of the exceptional design and creative work done by communication professionals to promote educational institutions (secondary, vocational, or higher education) and supports the exchange of ideas and information relating to the unique role of these creatives.

These annual awards honor the best work in educational design — in print, digital, illustration, photography, and student competitions.

To partecipate you need to enter your portfolio pieces. Any work designed, published, created, or used by an educational institution is eligible (not limited to higher education). Work must have been published for the first time after June 1, 2020.

The awards are judged by a hand-picked panel of peer jurors composed of designers, design educators, photographers, and illustrators working in or doing a significant portion of their work for educational institutions.

Winning entries of these four competitions will be part of the UCDA Design Show on display during the 51st annual UCDA Design Conference, scheduled for October 2-5, 2021, in Denver, Colorado. The conference provides you an opportunity to get an in-depth look at the issues facing designers and communication professionals, both in and out of educational institutions, and gain inspiration for better collaboration.

Who may enter?

Entries may be submitted by any institution, company, or individual involved in the creation or production of the work.


Winners will receive an award certificate to display proudly, higher visibility and a great marketing opportunity to promote their services to colleagues, clients, or the media.
