AWDA is a project curated by Cinzia Ferrara, Laura Moretti, Carla Palladino and Daniela Piscitelli and organised by Aiap. The fourth edition of the Biennial Award is open to visual communication women designers. The concept of the Award originates from research iniatives by Aiap and aims to acknowledge and share the contributions of numerous women designers in the field of visual communication design who have contributed to, and continue to enhance, the universe of graphic design.
Participation in the Award is opened only to women designers that fall within the three sections of the Award, covering various phases in the educational and professional life of visual communication women designers and providing a comprehensive overview of projects in this area of design. The three categories are aimed at: professionals, researchers and teachers and students. The possibility of awarding a career prize is foreseen at discretion of the curators.
AWDA wishes to explore and promote the little-known universe of women working in visual communication design. The aim is not rhetorical or self-referential, in an attempt to celebrate “women’s graphics”, but rather to investigate the idioms, poetics and different approaches to graphic design which otherwise would never be brought to light.
The international jury will select the projects suitable for publication and among them will identify those to be awarded Aiap Women in Design Award 2019. The official Award-giving ceremony of the fourth edition will be held during the next edition of Aiap Design Per, International Graphic Design Week in 2019.
