The International Visual Identity Awards (IVIAs)each year invite companies, agencies, freelance designers and students in full time education around the world to enter their work. The Visual Identity Awards are the first independent international logo design competition dedicated solely to visual identity. Their mission is to formally recognize and celebrate the world’s best visual identity design.
Entries must include not just a logo but also examples of its application across different items as part of a brand's visual identity system.

- Charity and non-profit

Judges are drawn from all around the world and represent a broad cross section of nationalities and skill sets.
The Early Bird entry fee is £35 + UK VAT for Student entries and £55 + UK VAT for other entries. Early Bird rates are available for a limited time only.
Entries are eligible from any country worldwide from both client and agency teams and we accept design work from agencies both big and small, as well as freelance designers. Students in full-time education may submit their work into the student category
