AWARD QUESTIONS

Will you organize a winning ceremony?

We decided not to organize a winning ceremony or an award gala. We believe that all the galas and events are incredibly nice but they make the awards extremely expensive for all the participants. Our team decided to focus on what is more important: the submitted entries. So we decided to create a more affordable and accessible award that many participants may enter in and share their works worldwide.

How are the winners announced?

All the winners are going to be announced online in LOOP Design Awards website – www.loopdesignawards.com – and also through all our social platforms and media partners. Also, all the voting process is going to happen online in a dedicated platform and it will be an easy and simple process.
