The projects have been chosen. We are now accepting applications from Charlottesville, Virginia-area designers who would like to participate in the First Annual Design Marathon and donate 12 hours of professional expertise to meet the needs of the ten community organizations.
Each individual designer must apply. Selected designers will be placed on the project they are best suited for. Project teams will not necessarily be made of of individuals from the same firm. If you are selected to be a designer your firm will be acknowledged as a sponsor of the event.
