ED Awards

18.05.2011 Features

Vilnius (Lithuania) - Celebrating their fifth year, the European Design (ED) Awards ceremony took place at the close of Spring: Icograda Design Week in Vilnius, Lithuania. Entries were divided into eight categories: special prizes, identity, publication, digital, packaging, illustration, self-promotion and various. Judges awarded 68 bronze, 60 silver and 32 gold medals.

The European Design project aims to celebrate European design with all its regional distinctive elements as well as its common grounds. They also wish to be a platform for European designers to meet, be inspired and build networks with each other. Through the ED Awards they seek to promote and raise standards for communication design throughout Europe and to properly honour and award people who invest their passion in design.
