"The deadlines are quickly approaching," according to Spark President, Peter Kuchnicki. "Enter by September 15 to keep entry fees down. But don’t fret if you miss that deadline—the late (and last) 2013 deadline is October 10."

He explained that "The registration system is pretty easy to follow. Just fill out the info in the enrollment page, make sure to check your email for our verification link, click on it and Bob’s yer uncle. You're ready to submit entries."

WHAT'S THE SPARK TEAM UP TO?
"Yep—we’re off again," said Spark Senior Adviser, Clark Kellogg. "The Spark team is paying visits to designers, design firms, companies and schools in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei and Seoul. The idea is to build awareness about the Spark opportunity and listen to our Asian communities. We're consulting with young leaders at the HKDA, Taiwan Designers Week and KIDP. Spark is bi-lateral in the best sense—both local and global at the same time. We’ll post the fun at the Spark AsianLine blog."

WHERE DOES SPARK GO NOW?
Into its seventh year—and now with seven Sparks. "That’s a very lucky 7×7," Kuchnicki stated. "To commemorate our 7th anniversary, we have been rolling out our hot new competitions, including Spark>Transport, which covers innovation and design from all sectors of that important category: Then we have a cutting edge competition for best App design, which includes any application-tool for any digital medium. And our latest innovation is the Spark>Experience Design Award."

"This is virgin territory for design awards. Spark wants to see—through the entries—the experience of designing experience. Everyone—clients and consultants both, is affected by going through the process, according to Spark developers. It has to change you, and we want to know how, said Kellogg. The entry process and suggested entry guidelines can be found at the Spark>Experience landing page at: http://www.sparkawards.com/call-for-entries/sparkexperience-design/.
