Knowing the Ropes
Judging various design competitions has been a humbling experience for me, and an amazing opportunity to learn from the work of serious design talent.
Although we all know that we are not to take the results of a competition personally, I’m not sure how we can really do that.
I appreciate that the expense in time, money and emotion required to enter a design contest is not insignificant, and today, neither is the compensation for the winners.
Hopefully these insights from the perspective of one judge may help to ensure that your efforts will be appropriately rewarded.
