Call for Nominations: The Margot Siegel Design Award


261842165805579415_e5ormQhJ_c.jpgThe Goldstein Museum of Design is pleased to announce a new award for emerging designers – The Margot Siegel Design Award. This award will be presented annually to a designer who represents innovation in his/her field and has yet to receive major recognition. The Siegel Design Award has been developed to propel new design through recognition of outstanding ideas, public service, and collaborative thinking.

The winner of the Siegel Design Award will receive an all-expense paid trip to the Twin Cities to speak at the College of Design and be presented with a check for $2,000. Margot Siegel, a long time supporter of the Goldstein Museum of Design, established this fund to recognize the importance of design in enhancing the quality of life. 

The Selection Committee tumblr_mdh0wjO2Q71qcddvlo1_500.jpgthat will review all nominations and select the winner will be composed of three volunteers from the GMD Advisory Board. Deadline for submissions is December 30, 2012. Nominations will be received in the GMD office and organized for the Selection Committee’s review.


Please consider nominating a designer for this award and forwarding this call to your professional colleagues and friends. This is an exciting new program that has great potential for rewarding good ideas and for reinforcing GMD and the College of Design’s support of good design.
