International Design Awards: 2018 Winner Galleries

Explore the 294 winners of the 25th HOW International Design Awards, judged by Su Mathews Hale, Pum Lefebure, Leland Maschmeyer, Vanessa Foley and Brian Collins.

As a creative, you understand that design is a universal language with the power to connect us all, no matter where in the world you call home. Even in the midst of chaos and disarray, your design powers burn bright, your ability to innovate perseveres and your ideas bring others together. 

That’s why the prestigious HOW International Design Awards has been recognizing excellence on a global scale for 25 years now—and why every year we honor hundreds of entries from all over the world.

This year we are proud to present the 294 winners of the 25th HOW International Design Awards, judged by Su Mathews Hale, Pum Lefebure, Leland Maschmeyer, Vanessa Foley and Brian Collins. Explore below, and get inspired by our Best of Show–winning project—100 million pixels of visual storytelling that transformed retail destination CityWalk Dubai into a jaw-dropping immersive experience—and every other winner across 18 categories, including the judges’ top picks.

All 294 winners also appear in the Spring 2018 issue of HOW magazine, and we’ll be honoring our Best of Show winner on the main stage at HOW Design Live 2018 (to which they’ve won a free trip, and where they’ll be taking part in other exclusive opportunities on-site, like a lunch date with a design hero and quality time with industry movers and shakers at the official HOW Design Live Speaker Reception).

If you want to get your hands on the amazing new prizes we’re offering HOW competition winners, check out all the open competitions and enter your best work today. We hope to see you at our next trophy ceremony—and in HOW+PRINT’s all-new book (we can’t wait until you see it)!
