DesignRush Print Design Awards Methodology and Criteria

Print Design Awards
Methodology
Brands and agencies interested in joining the Print Design Awards must submit their designs for evaluation between the 1st and 25th of the month.

When selecting print design award winners, our jury refers to a clear-cut set of metrics for evaluating a print material, such as impact, creativity, functionality, execution, branding, and user experience. A juror then rates each submission on a scale from 1 to 10, the average of which counts as the final grade.

The entire vetting process takes two weeks, after which the winning designs are published and promoted on all DesignRush channels, including social media.
1. Impact:
  • Does the design trigger an immediate response?
  • Does it capture and retain attention?
2. Creativity:
  • Does the design feature creative design solutions?
  • Does the design offer a new perspective, or does it take an innovative approach in terms of techniques, tools, design concepts, and materials?
3. Functionality:
  • Is the design useful? If so, how?
  • Does it achieve its purpose?
  • Does it facilitate and contribute to the user's experience?
4. Execution:
  • Does the design reflect meticulous execution?
  • Is it detail-oriented?
5. Branding:
  • Does the design reflect the brand it represents?
6. User experience:
  • Is the design accessible to all users?
  • Is the design user-friendly and user-focused?

In how many categories can I submit my designs?

You can submit as many designs in as many categories as you want – as long as they fulfill the criteria for each category.

What happens if my design doesn’t win?

Design Awards is just one of the many perks of connecting with DesignRush. After announcing the winners, our team will contact you for other opportunities like Design Trends articles, Agency Directory, and Marketplace.

What happens if a brand receives a badge, but their design agency goes unrecognized for their work?

Creative solutions rarely bloom in isolation.

At DesignRush we recognize that design is a collaborative process that combines strategic thinking, creative sensibility, and expert guidance.

This is why Design Awards welcome applications not only from agencies and designers but from brands as well.

If a brand’s submission is awarded, we will gladly extend the award to their design partner if they prove their involvement in the project.

Are there any costs I should be aware of?

You can choose from BASIC ($75), STANDARD ($600) or PREMIUM ($1,500) submission packages to have your designs evaluated. One design per category counts as one submission.

Which package should I get?

BASIC is for freelancers who want to get their feet at the door.

STANDARD is for startup creatives building an impressive portfolio.

Last but definitely not least, PREMIUM is for creative teams who want to make the most out of their exposure on DesignRush — with Agency Listing on top of design recognition.

I paid the submission fee. Does it mean my design/s will be featured?

The submission packages allow us to have your design/s evaluated by the jury. It neither guarantees that your entry will win the competition nor is it an assurance to be featured on DesignRush as the Best Design.
