YDA Awards Open for Entries
The Y Design Awards (YDA), part of London Design Festival, is now open for entries. Covering nine categories, the awards recognise excellence in the UK’s digital creative industries at a designer level.
In 2007 112 of the UK's leading online design agencies submitted more than 420 entries for the Y Design Awards, and this year the organisers are looking for the best in interactive and digital design. The judges include respected practitioners from the UK’s design community, including Airside’s Managing Director and Founder Nat Hunter, AIG's Malcolm Garrett and Chris Walker, Director of Technology at Agency.com.
Entrants are encouraged to submit their work via the YDA Website.
