One winner will earn the grand prize: $25,000 in retail goods and services, the opportunity to collaborate and co-host with celebrity designer, Mark Brunetz; a professionally produced video will be provided to the winner and winning charity for use to promote their work, and they will be included in marketing materials. Four regional prizes will awarded.
“Design for a Difference is more than a name; it’s a mission to unite a community of designers and leverage their ability to change lives, one space at a time. And when it’s a space at a charity, it becomes the gift that keeps on giving,” Brunetz said. “It’s so important to give back, and this contest makes it so much easier for philanthropic designers to do so.”
