Designers and other creative types are familiar with entering their work in awards shows, but what about applying to do the judging itself?
Arguably, it’s as important (at a certain point in your career, anyway) to be seen as an arbiter of what’s good as well as a creator of it. So if you’re at the right place with your business, you might want to think about applying to be a judge of the 38th Annual Creativity Awards. Call for entries doesn’t begin until June, but they’re considering judges now.
It’s not a big paycheck, although there is a $500 travel allowance to Louisville, KY, where the judging will take place from August 14 – 16. But to me, the point seems to be more about active participation in the applied arts community, as well as perhaps stepping up your self-promo game.
If you’re interested in being a Creativity 38 Judge, they ask that you email a brief bio outlining your qualifications to them at info -at- creativityawards -dot- com. Or you can call (866) 519-5271 if you have any questions.
And just curious—have any of you judged any competitions before? What did you get from the experience?
