Core77, Inc., the leading online industrial design magazine, released the full list of the 2016 Core77 Design Awards honorees today and kicked off their second annual Core77 Community Choice Awards. The honorees hail from all over the globe and represent the most innovative and inspiring student and professional work from across 14 categories of design focus. 179 total honors were bestowed by the dedicated jury teams.
Presiding over the judging process for the 2016 Core77 Design Awards was a multi-national panel of design experts comprised of 54 individual jurors. Our jurors hailed from 15 unique countries, giving this year's Awards program an exceptional global presence. The jurors were particularly impressed by the emphasis on research driven projects this year, as well as the clever simplicity of many design solutions. Additionally, they admired the trend of socially and environmentally conscious design that has become a cornerstone of the field over recent years.
The honoree announcements also kick off the public voting for the second annual Core77 Community Choice Prize. This relatively new addition to the Design Awards program asks the global design community to vote on their favorite honored entries between today and June 26th. A grand prize winner, the project that receives the most votes over all across all 14 categories, will receive airfare and accommodations to attend the 2016 Core77 Conference in Los Angeles, California. Anyone who votes in the Community Choice Awards will be automatically entered into a drawing for one of three free tickets to attend the 2016 Core77 Conference.
