Announcement of final results
The submission of applications for participation in the “Good Design Greece Exhibition 2018” was completed with great success. This year’s Jury’s task was particularly difficult, because they had to evaluate more than 200 entries by Greek and Cypriot designers.
For the second consecutive year, the creative community of Greece and Cyprus supported the initiative of the international “Good Design Awards”.
They presented their designing inspirations at a national level, in an exhibition which aimed at highlighting the people and their creativity, with projects that stand out for their originality, technique, aesthetics and overall design perception.
