Entries should be a single publication, published no more than once a year, and can include annual reports, viewbooks, catalogs, books, and other promotional publications. Entries will be evaluated based exclusively on overall design (not content), including typography, organization, presentation, and use of photography and illustrations. Note: If, due to COVID-19, you produced and distributed your publication via PDF, you may include it as well. Consider uploading a short phone-produced video that describes the piece or shows how a user would interact with it.
