Enter GDUSA’s Annual Health+Wellness Awards

MEDICINE+HEALTHCARE | PHARMA+INSURANCE | FITNESS + NUTRITION | PUBLIC HEALTH

MENTAL+SPIRITUAL HEALTH | HOSPITALS+INSTITUTIONS | SENIOR CARE | CBD+CANNABIS

 

 

Never has it been so clear that health and wellness are of transcendent importance to our individual and societal well-being – as well as the epicenter of the national conversation and policy debate – and an area in which graphic designers have a vital role to play. Our annual competition has long taken in the big picture of healthcare — from traditional medicine to healthy lifestyles from physical to mental health from pharmaceuticals to medical cannabis from established practices to alternative solutions. This is a rare opportunity to be recognized by clients, colleagues, managers, and the community for design and marketing excellence. GDUSA has been publishing to and organizing competitions for the creative community for 61 years.

ELIGIBILITY 

Entries may be submitted by any company, agency or individual involved in the creation or production or distribution or placement of the work. Entries must have been created or produced or published anytime after January 1, 2023.

SPECIAL NOTE TO ENTRANTS

Now in our 61st year, GDUSA competitions have grown so large that we have engaged a specialized awards firm respected and renowned — OPENWATER — that greatly simplifies the entry process and makes the flow easier and more intuitive for you. Among the upgrades: you can start an entry, save it in draft, and finish it later; and we have created a CART system that lets you collect all the entries and pay once at the end of the process with all major credit cards. GDUSA will, of course, continue to control all design,  content, and review activities.

1. CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT OR LOG IN

In most cases you will need to open a new account. This is quick and easy; just a few lines of basic information. If you happen to already have an OpenWater account, you can simply log in.

2. SELECT THE CATEGORY

Select the category that best describes your entry.

3. SUBMIT ENTRY DETAILS

For each entry, design firm or creative agency or inhouse department plus client, title of entry, creative credits.

4. UPLOAD DIGITAL FILES/ELECTRONIC ARTWORK

Specifications are provided for all types of categories. In most cases, you will be asked to upload 1-4 images that display your entry or 1 composite image that includes the highlights. When relevant, such as for websites and videos, we ask for the URL as well as the 1-4 supporting still images. For the images, we much prefer JPGs but will accept other formats.

5. PAYMENT FOR ENTRIES (AND PAST WINNER DISCOUNT)

Each entry automatically appears in a CART and you can pay once for any or all entries at the end. We accept payment by major Credit Cards or via Paypal. There are deep volume discounts built automatically into the entry fee schedule (see below).

PAST WINNERS of ANY GDUSA competition are entitled to an additional automatic 20% DISCOUNT by using the past winner promo code; if you need the code just email awards@gdusa.com
