TDK Awards

Welcome to our annual Graphic Design awards!

As per everything TDK, it’s free for students and grads to enter, the purpose is to celebrate emerging design talent from around the world, and the winners are announced at the beginning of each year.

We launched our own awards after getting sick of paid awards for students, with weird requirements and little exposure at the end. Ours are super simple – you submit a short 5 page portfolio, and each year we pick 10 amazing judges to look at them. They choose 3 each which they would hypothetically be interested in interviewing further, we ask them why they picked you which we put on our blog post and we promote you with a full interview on our site, full coverage on our global newsletter and lots of love on our bulging Instagram account with over 1 million impressions each week! If you're in that top 30 for the year, it's THE perfect boost for starting your design career and launching yourself into the industry.

Our previous judges include: &Walsh (NYC), Anagrama (Mexico City), Brand New (Nashville), Christopher Doyle & Co (Sydney), Collins (SF/NYC), Hey Studio (Barcelona), It's Nice That (London), Jacky Winter (Melbourne/NYC), Timothy Goodman (NYC/Paris), Ustwo (London/Sydney) and 40 other total design legends from around the globe.
