I.D. is proud to announce the expansion of its Annual Design Review in 2010 with two new categories including Gaming.
Too often overlooked as part of the Interactive category, Gaming needs its own section to reflect the explosion of digital gaming products and platforms, which has become a growing part of daily life for everyone, not just gaming enthusiasts. We'll consider console games, computer games, web-based games, and mobile games (including iPhone apps), as well as consoles, controllers, and other systems. Note: traditional play-oriented consumer products, such as sports gear and board games, should still be submitted to the Consumer Products category. If you have already submitted a Gaming entry to the Interactive category, you do not need to resubmit. Your entry will be recategorized.
Here is the complete list of categories in this year's Annual Design Review:
* Consumer Products
* Transportation (New Category)
* Gaming (New Category)
* Student Work (Formerly the Student Design Review)
Since 1954, the Annual Design Review has recognized the best in product, furniture, graphic, and environment design, from the iconic to the obscure. Throughout the years, this annual showcase has chronicled the evolution of design, and highlighted its impact on our material and visual culture. Each year, the featured work is chosen by a jury of leading practitioners, who, along with I.D.'s editorial team, focus the abundance of submissions into a clear survey of the state of design. The resulting overview is published in the July/August issue of I.D. magazine — the Annual Design Review issue.
Work must have been created between January 1, 2009 and December 1, 2009. Student work must be the result of a classroom/academic assignment completed during the 2008/2009 academic year. Students must include a copy of an official student I.D. from that year. The student Best of Category winner will receive the RADO YOUNG TALENT DESIGN AWARD, a $10,000 prize.
