WHAT DO WE ASK OF THE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS?

That they integrate the participation in the Contest into their academic planning and assign a teacher or supervisor of their students’ designs, included in the participation agreement.

The important of this aspect was apparent in the 1st and 3rd Edition of the Contest, in which the ESI Valladolid Higher School of Design and Esapa Asturias won 4 of the 6 main prizes of the 2018 and 2020 editions, winning the Best Educational Institution in Label Design 2018 and 2020, which is the highest award as a label design educational institution in Spain.
