Nine DTTO 2022 Scholarships awarded to Emerging Designers through the #HeyRGD Program

Through the support of our sponsors, the RGD awarded scholarships to nine emerging designers to attend DesignThinkers Toronto 2022. 


This August and September, Student RGDs, Junior Affiliates and Provisional RGDs were invited to post their branding and packaging work on Instagram for an opportunity to win a scholarship to DesignThinkers Toronto.
Nine #heyRGD winners were chosen by our generous industry Sponsors. Each winner received $500 from the sponsors to attend the DesignThinkers Conference in Toronto on October 27 and 28.
Congratulations to the scholarship winners and thank you to everyone who entered!
