Core77 Design Awards

Why should you enter?

To the victor go the spoils, but there are benefits to simply entering your designs in the Core77 Design Awards, whether you win or not.

Just for Entering

Your work is given to a group of design experts who might otherwise never see your ideas, process and perspective. This is a valuable opportunity that could bring you career changing insight on your work.

You now have a portfolio ready piece to share with others. Entering the Core77 Design Awards requires that your work and your commentary about it is ready to be reviewed by a panel of design experts. This preparation process leaves your submission more than ready to present to future employers. What you learn from entering can be applied to any piece in your portfolio.

When You Win

Your name and your work are showcased across the Core77 blog and social networks for the entire year. That’s an audience of a few hundred thousand people who will become familiar with your designs.

You get the coveted Core77 Design Awards trophy. Not only is your trophy unique to you and the category you entered, you can use your trophy as a mold to make more trophies. Wax, chocolate and silicone are the most popular replication materials, but the possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

You earn bragging rights. Of all the people from across the globe that entered, your design was chosen by our jury of experts for being exemplary in its field. Adding this win to your website, resume, LinkedIn profile, etc, could lead to greater career and collaborative opportunities, and at very least, a few jealous friends.

You are automatically in the running to win the Community Choice Prize.

How to Enter

It’s easy! Create an account with Core77, complete an entry form for each project, submit each project and pay for your entries. You can enter as many projects as you want and enter a project into as many categories as applies. For tips on how to create the perfect Core77 Design Awards entry, take a look at our step by step guide.

Create an Account

You’ll need a Core77 account in order to enter the Design Awards. If you don’t have an account, it’s easy to create one. If you do, sign in and get started today.

After creating and confirming your account, sign in and click on the Awards. Here, you can create a new entry, work on a previous draft or view completed and paid entries.

Required Entry Elements

The following elements of your entry are required for submission, so your entry won’t be complete without them:

  • Project Title
  • The Designer Name ( whether it’s you or someone else )
  • The Client Name
  • The Thumbnail Image ( must be at least 400 pixels tall and 400 pixels wide )
  • The Project Overview
  • At least one Project Image
  • The Project Details
  • At least one Category selected

Project Overview

After you fill in your Project Title, the Designer Name, the Client Name and you upload a Thumbnail Image, write a brief summary about your project. This should give the jury a brief overview of what your entry is and is limited to 500 words or less. You will have an opportunity to write in greater detail about your work in the “Project Details” section.

Prepare Your Images

You must upload at least 1 image to the Project Images section.

All images must be JPEG, GIF or PNG format.

The maximum image dimension is 3000 pixels tall or wide ( whichever measurement is greater ).

The maximum individual file size is 15MB. No Zip, Stuffit or compressed files.

Project Details

Your Project Details section should describe your intent as you approached your project in 1500 words or less. What is your point of view? The juries would love to know about this, as well as the process that informed your project. When describing your process, think about research, ethnography, subject matter experts, materials exploration, technology, iteration, testing and anything else that went into the project. It also helps to describe the stakeholder interests your project considers, such as audience, businesses, organizations, labor, manufacturing and distribution.

Optional Entry Elements

The following elements of your entry are optional for submission, so you can submit your entry without them:

  • Team Credits
  • Project Video
  • External Link
  • Project PDF

Support PDF Document ( optional )

You may upload one supporting document about your project. File must be PDF format with max file size of 15MB with a maximum of 30 pages.

Tips for Uploading Your File

Ensure that your file is one of our listed compatible file types. Double check the size; if it’s too large, it won’t upload!

Please note that if you are selected for an honor in the 2021 Core77 Design Awards, all project assets will be posted for viewing on our website. Do not include anything in your entry you do not wish the general public to view.
