When it comes to the SEGD Global Design Awards, there's no skimping when it comes to the way the Jury handles and judges your entries.

Jury Selection: Jurors are selected for their expertise across various practice areas to represent the categories and the field in general by the Jury Chair, with suggestions from the board, CEO and staff as well. The result is a truly accomplished and multidisciplinary team that really understands what makes great Environmental and Experiential Graphic Design.

Jury Meeting: The Jurors meet face-to-face for three days in a quiet space to review your hard work, and are provided with hard copies of each and every entry. That means your work receives the time and attention it deserves, from nine experts in a contemplative space with no distractions. When was the last time that happened?

Jury Deliberation: First, each Juror reviews every single entry individually. Then, the Jury reviews each and every entry as a group within its practice area, before taking some time out to reflect on what submissions stood out most to them, and why. Lastly, the Jury will do their final deliberations. It's a long and involved process, but it's worth it.

Your best work deserves to be treated with the utmost care. Need more reasons to enter the SEGD Global Design Awards? Here's a list.Want to find out what tips the Jury have for your entries? Voila!Need examples? See award-winning work here.
