Design writing awards

The 2009 Winterhouse Awards for Design Writing & Criticism are now open for entries until June 1st. The main award is $10,000 with a student award of $1000.

The Winterhouse Awards for Design Writing & Criticism seek to increase the understanding and appreciation of design, both within the profession and throughout American life. A program of AIGA, these annual awards have been founded by Jessica Helfand and William Drenttel of the Winterhouse Institute to recognize excellence in writing about design and encourage the development of young voices in design writing, commentary and criticism.
