In-house Designers: Enter InHOWse Design Awards

Hey there, in-house designer, we know that you work hard on the design work for your corporation, association or organization. It’s time to show off your best creative work by entering the HOW’s inHOWse Design Awards by Monday, June 3rd. The deadline is soon, but let’s be real here: You have created some awesome design work and deserve some props for it. And this competition is just for in-house design groups.

Indulge me as I rattle off a few more reasons why you should enter (these are even reasons you can use to persuade the non-design folks as to why you should enter your work).

Submissions are divided into business categories, such as government, B2B, kids, pets, travel and so on, (check out the complete list on the entry page) to make sure sure that a wide variety of design work is evaluated.

Winners get some pretty neat prizes. The Best of Show winners will get to see their work in a 2-page spread in HOW’s January 2014 issue (holy smokes, that’s some bragging rights) and will be featured in our online gallery. We’ll also send out a press release about the winning work, and you’d get a trip to the HOW Design Live Conference in 2014.

The Merit Winners’ work will also be published in HOW Magazine, and they’ll receive a gift certificate for $100 toward the 2014 HOW Design Live Conference.

While a lot of this will benefit you individually, it will also promote your company and give them some limelight, too. Come on, get the attention you deserve. We’re looking forward to checking out your design prowess.
