Calling for Power of Design in Action



Judging Feedback

We would like to thank everyone who entered. We hope this competition challenged designers to think more about how to apply their skills to solving important issues.

Quite a few of the entries provided a unique perspective and we are grateful to everyone's efforts. Many of the entries will need a bit of work before the can be put into practical use, however, we have selected three designs to be shared with disaster-relief organizations for further improvements and possible implementation in the real world. These three Judge's Picks will additionally receive $500 USD.
