FAQ

01

How many entries can I submit into the Good Design Awards?

Applicants may enter as many entries as they would like to be assessed by our international expert judging panel. The same entry may also be submitted in more than one category if applicable.

02

Can I enter a product range as a single entry?

Yes. A product range is only eligible for entry if every product within the range is represented and submitted for assessment in the range. Alternatively, products within this range are eligible for individual entry providing that they do not carry the word ‘range’ in the Entry Name and, if selected, the accolade must be attributed to the individual product assessed rather than the range it is a part of. For more clarification, please contact us.

Can I use the Good Design® Tick overseas and under a different brand name?

Yes. Once you purchase the Winners Package, you and any third parties associated with the design and development of the entry are entitled to unlimited logo reproduction for the lifetime of the entry across all platforms as it is internationally registered and recognised.
