Eligible projects include print, packaging, advertising, web and multi-media projects completed within the past two years. Visit the “How to Enter” page for more details on eligibility, entry fees and rules.All levels of sustainable and socially-responsible design projects are welcome–even small considerations can make a big difference.

The winners will be selected by an esteemed panel of jurors, who are committed practitioners of sustainable and socially-responsible design. (One is MCAD’s very own Holly Robbins!)
