the award originates within the research activities of aiap

AWDA is a project by Cinzia Ferrara, Laura Moretti and Daniela Piscitelli, curated and organized by aiap. It is a biennial Award open to visual communication women designers. It’s Biennial Award third edition open to visual communication women designers. The Award originates within aiap’s research activities, and aims at reconstructing and acknowledging the contribution that many visual communication women designers have given and continue to give to the universe of graphic design.


Participation in the Award is opened only to women designers that fall within the four 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 four categories are aimed at: professionals, researchers and teachers, students and a special career award.


who is it for the award


design biennal award for communication

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 2017. The official Award-giving ceremony will take place Wednesday, September 30, 2017, during the next edition of Aiap Design Per, International Graphic Design Week, to be held in Istituto Centrale per la Grafica in Rome (Italy).
