Physical Entries

The Anchorage Museum is excited for us to be able to continue displaying The BIG One entries for AIGA Alaska’s second annual Design Week Showcase. To navigate a COVID-19 environment, we have a solution to safely receive and display physical entries while moving People’s Choice voting online. 

2020 physical entry guidelines:

  • Create a single 11×14, print-ready, digital image with .125″ bleed on all four sides (no crop marks) for each entry.
  • Vertical/portrait orientation ONLY.
  • Only one 11×14 layout per entry—think of it as the ‘hero image’ for your entry.
  • AIGA Alaska will match your provided image with the submission details—creative brief, credits, etc—so you don’t have to include any of that info in your design.
  • AIGA Alaska will oversee production, delivery, and installation at the Anchorage Museum.
  • Entries will be printed on recyclable, fully organic materials—no foam core—and properly disposed of after Anchorage Design Week.
  • The physical entry deadline is September 25, 2020.
  • Email your layout(s) to
  • Questions? Email those as well.

People’s Choice voting:

  • People’s Choice voting will be done using the Judgify App in a unique judging round before awards are announced.
  • Physical entries will not be used for People’s Choice voting this year.

AIGA Alaska is committed to providing the best service possible—in the safest manner possible—for The BIG One. In a time where limited contact is recommended, and extra safety measures are added in both public and private spaces with limited notice, our goal is for The BIG One to be more inclusive and sympathetic for all parties involved. While it is not socially responsible for AIGA Alaska to encourage public gatherings or coordinate a drop-off station this year, we hope that our part in producing your physical entries makes up for the increased limitations for your display piece. NOTE all of the above information is contingent upon whether or not the Museum will be open for visitors during Design Week—we are in regular communication.
