The European Design Awards are annual awards presented to European designers for outstanding work in the communication design field. With 34 categories, covering print, packaging, exhibition and digital design, typography and illustration, self-promotion and a student category with exciting prizes, the European Design Awards promote and honour people with a passion for design. The ED-Awards is a joint initiative of design magazines from across Europe and endorsed by the International Council of Graphic Design Associations. Judged by a panel of representatives from print and digital European publications, design journalists and critics – people who see and judge work for a living, the European Design Awards offer a great chance to designers from all across Europe to get their work noticed.
With a lot of stories and articles being written about the submitted work every year and an established social media presence, the European Design Awards aim to create a directory of European communication design excellence, where design buyers from around the world will go to in search of collaborators.
