About ED Awards
A European Community
of Excellence

Since 2007, a group consisting of publishers, journalists, editors and academics, gather together on a yearly basis as the jury for the European Design Awards. Together, they evaluate and acknowledge the best examples of communication design in Europe from participants throughout the continent.

The jury members curate similar content on a daily basis, adding an aspect of uniqueness to the European Design Awards. By entering, participants have an opportunity to make their work visible to a wider audience (through the media that the jury members represent).

Once the closing date for submissions for the European Design Awards passes, the jury assembles in order to evaluate the submissions. After the winners are announced, the European Design Awards wraps up with a festival, followed by the Awards Ceremony itself.

Every year, the European Design Awards Festival and Awards Ceremony is held in a different city. It is recognized as one of the most important events in the communication design calendar, creating an ideal opportunity for the most creative people of our community to come together, network, be inspired and celebrate.
