Sponsored Nov. 11, 2019 by Mohawk Paper
Mohawk Paper is introducing a new kind of awards show. The Mohawk Show is driven by a simple idea: Great work deserves the opportunity to make more great work. We all have an idea on the backburner that’s so niche, indulgent or impractical that we just can’t justify it. Now imagine you didn’t have to.
Mohawk is rewarding stand-out work (on their papers, of course) with Maker Grants to turn passion projects into portfolio centerpieces. These aren’t your average cash prizes. Winners will choose from a variety of known printers to produce their passion project and Best in Show will receive the first-ever residency at Crane & Co. in North Adams, Massachusetts. And unlike typical design contests, The Mohawk Show doesn’t corral artwork into arbitrary categories. Instead, any and all work made the past two years on Mohawk paper will be accepted and evaluated based on six criteria. The judges will look for:
- Object Quality
- Material Quality
- Paper as the Fifth Color
- Pairing Texture
- Paper & Process
Speaking of judges, entries will be evaluated by an eclectic, bright collection of design thinkers. Mohawk has lined up industry veterans and fresh faces who represent a spectrum of design thinking — and they’re ready to see your best work.
