Health and wellness are of transcendent importance to our individual and societal well-being – the epicenter of policy debate and national conversation — and an area in which graphic designers have a vital role to play. Our annual competition takes the big picture: traditional medicine and healthcare; healthy lifestyles and nutrition; mental and spiritual well-being; and public and community health. As we pivot to a post-pandemic future, this is a rare opportunity at a unique moment to be recognized by clients, managers, and the creative community for design, advertising and marketing excellence that matters.
