Best Awards, the entry countdown is on

Written by Sara Black

New Zealand’s Best Awards season is nigh and it’s time to show off your creative chops.

Since 1988, the Best Awards have showcased the finest design talent our shores have to offer. Graphic, spatial, product interactive and motion have come a long way (thankfully?) since the late 80s along with the advent of personal computers, internet and bucketloads of incredible talent.

Courtesy of the Designers Institute of New Zealand, the Best Awards crew tackle the unenviable task of whittling down our finest creators’ work to award them a purple or gold pin. A tangible, stationery-inspired symbol of excellence. Also up for grabs, are four highly coveted black pins, awarded to individuals deemed most outstanding in their achievements.

Take a look at the categories below and, if you haven’t yet entered, get hustling. Entries close 29 July.
