As winter turns to spring, we are getting closer to the biggest event of the AIGA Salt Lake calendar, the 2015 100 Show. The 100 Show, this region’s most prestigious juried competition, honors and showcases this year’s best design, advertising and digital media. Of the 100 best pieces selected, only 10 entries will be awarded the Copper Ingot, one of the most sought-after communication awards in the intermountain west. Three student Copper Ingots will be given for exemplary work in the student category. Gather your best work and submit them to us before March 20th (There is also a late entry deadline of March 26th with a late fee per submission).
Along with the call for submissions, we are now able to present this year’s judges, as well as feature the venue for the 100 Show Gala. We are shaking things up a bit this year and will be hosting the show at the old Anthropologie space at the Gateway Mall. Be prepared for a great evening of music, food, drinks, and of course, the best design that Salt Lake has to offer.
In order to select the best work from our design community, we made sure to bring in top tier judges to our fair city. Judge selection is always a very extensive process. Each year our board researches qualified candidates who are well respected, experienced and can relate to our market to judge our competition. This year’s judge search was no exception. Our judges encompass proficiencies in multiple areas of expertise to make the connections and understand how ideas and creativity can combine for powerful results.
