What would happen if design projects and initiatives with the potential to change the world were given the opportunity to tell their story? The good folks at ICSID are announcing the launch of the World Design Impact Prize as their answer to this question. This biennial award was created, "to be a great vehicle for social, cultural, economic and environmental progress throughout the world," as ICSID President Mark Breitenberg explained. The organization created a unique selection process with a public review accessible online followed by 160 ICSID member organizations voting to determine the Prize winner.
Beginning Februrary 22nd, ICSID will be accepting nominations from member organizations. The winner will be announced at the ICSID General Assembly taking place in Taipei, Taiwan in October. Check out their site, www.icsid.org for more info about the Prize and the organization.
