Design association AIGA seeks to recognize visual communicators who use their creativity to shape a better world. The group is asking designers to submit their sustainable and socially-responsible design projects, both big and small, for the 2013 (Re)design Awards.

“The (Re)design Awards” is an international graphic design competition conducted by AIGA Minnesota on behalf of AIGA, celebrating the most influential projects that advocate for strong communities, sustainable environments and thriving economies,” says contest co-chair Amy Dritz. “Design professionals, students, educators, businesses and organizations from around the world are invited to enter their most sustainable design work and show how they are positively impacting our society and the environment. Eligible projects include print, packaging, advertising, web and multi-media projects completed within the past two years.”

Design submissions will be judged on overall craftsmanship, creativity, and effectiveness in considering environmental, economic, social and cultural impacts—in keeping with The Living Principles for Design. The winners will be selected by a panel of jurors, who are committed practitioners of sustainable and socially-responsible design. Winners will be announced at the (Re)design Awards Show in Minneapolis, MN, on October 10, 2013. The winning entries will be on display during the event and later archived in an online gallery at
