The 2019 AIGA Philadelphia Design Awards are now open!


Philadelphia is brimming with remarkably talented designers and artists that rival those in any city in the world. In an effort to showcase our local talent—and engage and strengthen our regional design community—AIGA Philadelphia invites local designers to submit their work to our biennial Philadelphia Design Awards competition, affectionately nicknamed PDA.

The competition celebrates the best design created in the Philadelphia area over the past two years. Will your work make the list of 100 top designs? There’s only one way to find out—you have to enter.


Designers and studios must be located within the Greater Philadelphia region (Philadelphia, Delaware County, Montgomery County, Bucks County, Chester County and Camden County, NJ).
Work must have been created between January 2017 and February 2019.
