ICSID GUIDELINES FOR DESIGN AWARD AND DESIGN COMPETITIONS
"This new approach of sharing Icsid's knowledge and expertise is in complete alignment with the renewal of our organisation," said Icsid President Dr. Brandon Gien. "We want to make sure these best practices are widely disseminated and used by the entire design community when implementing a design initiative."
First developed in 1971 and reviewed and updated periodically, Icsid's Guidelines provide the international standard for design awards and competitions, ensuring intellectual property protection as well as fair and respectful practices for all involved—participants, jurors, and organisers.
Previously available only to those undergoing a rigorous endorsement application and granting process, Icsid's Guidelines will now be shared publicly for use and reference by the wider design community, as adopted in a motion by Icsid's Board during its February 2015 meeting. Icsid Members are encouraged to follow the guidelines and use their 'Member of Icsid' logo to promote any design conference, competition, award, tradeshow, design week they host.
