Early-Bird Deadline for HOW’s In-House Design Awards is 5/5!

11:59pm EST this Friday, May 5 is the early-bird deadline for HOW’s In-House Design Awards. What exactly does that mean for you and your in-house design team? Submit your team’s best work by that deadline and you’ll pay only $105 for a single entry, or $130 for a campaign entry (which we define as three or more pieces that function as a system).

Prices will go up after the early-bird deadline. We encourage you to enter now and spend those extra dollars on celebratory pizza!

call for entries: In-House Design Awards

Why should your team enter? Winners of the HOW In-House Design Awards benefit in some pretty fantastic ways. Beyond the significant recognition of your team’s hard work, winners find their work featured in print and also online, where it’s sometimes featured multiple times throughout the year and beyond, gaining them valuable exposure.

This also means that when you win, today’s top talent (AKA that person who could be your next team member) sees your team’s award-winning work, and you also have a valuable new tool for recruiting. Not to mention, you’ll find networking opportunities galore at HOW Design Live 2018 with the free Big Ticket registration that goes to the Best of Show winner.

If you’re unsure whether your team should enter, hear from one of our past winners:
