Get Involved with RGD as a judge for the 2014 Student Awards


Registered Graphic Designers (members who have achieved the full professional RGD designation) are invited to put their names forward as possible judges for RGD's 2014 Student Awards Program


This year, RGD will present $17,000 in cash awards to Students across Canada in recognition of design excellence. 


How it works: 

  1. Following the May 9 deadline for entries, Student Award judges are sent an email linking to the Student submissions to be reviewed 
  2. Judges are asked to select up to ten top submissions on which they would like to provide feedback 
  3. Each judge will fill out an online scoring form with feedback for the submissions they have selected 
  4. Scores from all judges are tabulated to identify the students who will be recognized as winners of the 2014 Awards 


Winning entries will be featured in a printed piece to be distributed with DesignEdge Magazine
