The Lighthouse – Glasgow : Design Impact Awards 2014 : Design Impact Award 2014 : Entries now open
July 5, 2014
The second bi-annual Design Impact Award, run by The Lighthouse, Scotland’s Centre for Design and Architecture, has been launched and you have until Friday, 5 September to enter!
The award which was launched in 2012 aims to demonstrate the huge impact that design and innovation makes to the way we live and work. The winner of The Lighthouse Design Impact Award will receive a prize of £5,000, funded by Creative Scotland. The award is also supported by Glasgow City Council.
Only work which is completed, has found a buyer, or is in use can be entered. The judges evaluate the benefits that a design or its process can have not just on the economy and environment, but also society.
The shortlist will be announced on Friday, 19 September.
From Thursday, 9 October to Thursday, 23 October an exhibition of the shortlisted entries will be open to the general public in The Lighthouse, where they are invited to vote for their favourite entry.
The Awards will culminate in an awards evening in October, where judges will make their decision about the winner and present him/her with their prize.
