16.1 Printed Self-Promotion


  • Self-promotion concerns material designed by a studio in order to promote its creative services.
  • In-house design departments of companies that do not practice design services as their primary
    function are allowed to compete in the other categories and are therefore excluded
    from the self-promotional categories.
