Entries from every country are eligible.
Friday, May 31, 2013:
1) Online forms and payment compeleted.
2) Packages postmarked.
All entries are to be judged anonymously so no references to the designer or design firm can be made on the online submission form.
When preparing entries for physical submission do not add any form of identification of the submitting designer or design firm. If your name is printed on the project itself because it is a self-promotion or because your client gave you a place for credit do not worry about covering it up, it is okay to enter it as is.
The same project can be submitted for judging in different categories. Separate entry form and fee apply for each category entered.
Entry information can only be completed online. Labels generated by our system are the only acceptable method for providing entry information. Do not send your own formatted information.
All information provided must be in English.
Entry materials that are in languages other than English must include a brief English translation.
Entries can only be submitted as samples of their produced, original form. Photographs or mock-ups are not acceptable.
Materials submitted will not be returned.
UnderConsideration is not responsible for materials that do not arrive. Fees paid will not be returned.
Packages must be delivered prepaid. Non-U.S. contestants please mark your packages “Printed Matter for contest entry. No commercial value.” Any customs fees for international shipments will be charged back to the entrant.
All winning entries will be published in the annual book and paid-access website.
Winning entrants must provide digital files for reproduction in the form of high resolution photographs, renderings are not acceptable. UnderConsideration will not photograph any winning entrant material.
Only winning entrants will be notified shortly after judging is complete, currently scheduled for June 21, 2013.
