San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 15, 2008
The American Design Awards are calling on all graphic and web designers to submit their best design creations to the 2008 Winter Semi Annual Design Contest, for a chance to win top honors in their world-renound competition. The Winter and Summer Semi-Annual Design Contests, which are now in their sixth year, are the flagship of the American Design Awards which attract an average of five thousand participants annually.
Deadline to submit entries for the 2008 Winter Semi-Annual Design Contest is February 15, 2008. Applications must be submitted online through the American Design Awards website.
The top three entries in each of the 22 design categories will be considered for the Award of Design Excellence -- this award is presented to designers or design firms who display outstanding design and creative abilities, while maintaining high ethical standards.
The American Design Awards mission is to provide a fair and ethical platform for all graphic and web designers of varying experience levels and disciplines to compete on, while providing a worldwide audience to showcase to.
With the ever-changing landscape of the design industry, the American Design Awards is also expanding its code of ethics by which designers are graded and judged. "Ethical standards have always been valued and exercised in our competitions; this is by far the most important qualification of any designer entering the awards program," said Kevin Javid, Vice President of the American Design Awards.
"Our organization's mission and the purpose of our events are to strengthen and emphasize ethical practices in our participants, benefiting both the designer as well as the design industry as a whole."
