#370: Can designs be submitted in sketch forms with hand written details?
No. You cannot submit design images or sketches that contain text. We especially do not allow designers to include text in their presentations for several reasons. 1) We want to make it easy for publications to copy paste or integrate the award winning work as easy as possible. When there are text in images, this is not so easy but also the editorial quality of image also decreases. 2) Our audience is international and we translate winning works to several languages, but if you include text in images that creates a problem for us, and it looks bad in any other language where the text you would enter would differ that of the audience native tongue. Any text should be submitted separately by filling the textual details of the design. Finally, sketches are accepted but they must be exceptionally good.
