European Design Awards 2021

Call for Entries

Author: Laura Nadvornik

The European Design Awards 2021 is now officially open for entries. Designers from around Europe are invited to begin their submissions, which can be made before February 26th, 2021. 

The European Design Awards is an annual event, bringing together the best examples of communication design in Europe. As a joint initiative by the major communication design magazines on the continent, it is widely recognized as one of the most prestigious design awards on an international level. 

Winning an ED-Awards prize is a career-defining moment. It brings recognition amongst your peers, respectful clients, and new projects. Through our media network, winners receive maximum exposure for their hard work and efforts.

Submissions are carefully evaluated by a jury who are drawn from representatives of the leading design media in Europe. The jury members are all design editors, publishers, critics, and academics who curate communication design on a daily basis.

We are more than proud that our managing and art director Julia Kahl was selected for the jury of the print products this year. You can find the complete jury line-up here.
