The International Design & Communication Awards


I am delighted to present the fifth edition of the International Design & Communication Awards (IDCA). I created the awards in 2007 to celebrate excellent design and communication initiatives across the art world.

The IDCA awards assess communications, design and branding strategies within the arts and museum sphere. They also encourage art organisations to find original and inventive ways to communicate.

Over 250 cultural organisations took part in the 2012, 2013 and 2014 editions. The jury members were delighted to witness and celebrate such excellent work in the museum field. The IDCA awards provide a new networking forum for communications and design professionals. Open to cultural institutions across the world, the awards bring together the best international talent.

Applications are open to museums and galleries, foundations, biennales, art centres and other visual arts organisations. Freelancers, advertising and design agencies can also enter under the name of the museum or institution they have worked for with their prior consent.

Registration for the 2015 edition of the awards is now closed and the finalists have been announced. The winners will be presented during Agenda's 15th Communicating the Museum conference in Istanbul, on 9 September 2015.
