In honor of the late social impact design pioneer, the Sylvia Harris Citizen Design Award–worth $10,000–will go to a project that addresses a pressing social issue, can be implemented in a timely manner, and will deliver positive results that can be measured. This award is presented by Design Ignites Change and AIGA, the professional association for graphic design.
“Sylvia Harris (1953 – 2011) is widely recognized as a pioneer, a generous mentor and a vital inspiration to the field of social impact design. In that spirit, the Sylvia Harris Citizen Design Award has been established to honor her legacy by supporting other vanguards dedicated to public design.”
Applicants need only one year of professional design experience and both designer and project must be located in the United States. Register and apply by August 3, 2015 for this outstanding opportunity to get a project off the ground.
