16.2 Digital 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.


  • Websites
  • Motion graphics
  • Banners
  • Digital newsletters
  • Games


  • The design must have been published/released in the previous calendar year.
  • If the project includes a website, please don’t forget to add this on the submission form.
  • If the site works best in a specific web browser or requires a specific password,
    please include all the necessary information on the submission form.
  • See previous winners in this category here.
