A EUROPEAN COMMUNITY OF EXCELLENCE

Since 2007 a group of people, made out of publishers, journalists, editors and academics, come together on a yearly basis, to gather, evaluate and acknowledge the best examples of communication design in our continent.

2021 European Design Awards

It is a very special and unique set up, in the sense that it involves the people who curate similar content on an every day basis. As such it also provides participants with an opportunity to make their worκ visible to a wider audience ( through the media that the jury members represent ).

The European Design Awards wraps up with a festival in a different city every year, leading up to the awards ceremony. This creates an ideal opportunity for the most creative people of our community to come together, benchmark, be inspired and celebrate.

2021 European Design Awards

Very soon the submission period will start for the 2021 edition of the European Design Awards.
We, therefore, thought it would be useful to inform all interested parties on the critical dates for this year’s organisation.

THE ENTRY DEADLINE IS 26 FEBRUARY 2021

• The submission period starts on December 21st, 2020
• Entry deadline is set for February 26th, 2021
• Physical samples ( for the categories that they are required ) should be at our Athens office by March 10th, at the latest
• Notification of finalists will commence on April 11th and will be completed within a week
• The awards ceremony ( and accompanying festival ) will take place in Valencia June 10th-13th, 2021

EUROPEAN DESIGN FESTIVAL

We hope that this year’s Festival will take place in Valencia ( with the care of the Asociación de Diseñadores de la Comunidad Valenciana ). The festival will include an awards show, conference, workshops, exhibitions, studio walks, and many other events! Creative people from all over Europe are expected to join the many events, which will also be open to the wider public. Please note that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, festival dates are provisional. Alternative plans are being drawn for all possible scenarios. Please follow this space for updates.
