2016 SEGD Global Design Awards

Late entries to the SEGD Global Design Awards—the only international awards program focused on user experiences in the built environment—will be accepted through February 14, 2016.

“Due to the snowstorm that barraged the East Coast, we’ve gotten a lot of feedback from studios and other companies that they want to submit their work, but were really challenged by their offices being closed,” says Clive Roux, SEGD CEO.

“We want to make sure everyone knows that entries are still being accepted through midnight on February 14.”

Entries received after the original January 31 deadline, but before the February 14 extension, will incur a $50 (USD) late fee per entry.

Since 1987, the SEGD Global Design Awards have set the standard of excellence for Environmental Graphic Design and Experiential Graphic Design—honoring design work that connects people to place by providing direction, content and compelling experiences in public spaces.

Past winners have ranged from interactive multimedia environments to complex hospital wayfinding systems and from branded corporate workplaces to museum exhibitions. Retail and interior projects, architectural signing, public art, design research and books have also won awards in the program.

The program encompasses seven categories:

  • Digital Experience Content
  • Exhibition
  • Interactive Experience
  • Placemaking and Identity
  • Public Installation
  • Strategy/Research/Planning
  • Wayfinding

Honor and Merit awards will be named in each of the categories and a Best in Show Award will also be announced. Examples of these categories and winning projects in each can be found in the SEGD Global Design Awards archive at www.segd.org/awards.

Late entries to the 2016 SEGD Global Design Awards are due February 14, 2016, through SEGD’s online entry system.

Submission guidelines can be downloaded on the 2016 awards page.
