Promotion & Marketing Design Competition & Awards

HOW’s longest-running design competition (launched in 1988), this is the only awards program to specifically recognize outstanding promotional work—whether it’s a self-promo to showcase a design firm’s capabilities, a project that touts a client’s goods or services, an announcement for a major life event or a student résumé or portfolio. HOW’s Promotion Design Awards celebrates design work that’s engaging, memorable and effective at moving the viewer toward action.
