CID Quality Awards in brief September '22

The CID Quality Awards was created to make CID related awards more accessible and fair and to be inclusive of all CID Pro's based on talent and not just budget. In general, most awarders charge an amount to cover costs and it's frequently also profitable for the awarder in some way.

Having declined offers due to the cost - with one costing nearly 700 Euro, the CID Quality Awards came to be.

Currently the awards will take place solely online with the award sent by email and posted online. The entire project relies on donations and sponsorship.


There is a vision. A vision of what it could be, based on the feedback and interactions of the past 3 weeks since this event went live.

Recently I had 4 conversations with people from 3 countries who informed me that they wish to travel to Amsterdam and attend a physical event.

So right now I'm conducting research and determining feasibility.

Should we host a physical event and screen the awards live from there with an after party in Amsterdam?

  • 0%Yes

  • 0%No

  • 0%Write an answer

(Everyone can see the final votes.)

Aside from that, I also need to see what kind of budget I can expect to work with, so here is the next poll.

How much would you be willing to spend?

  • 0-100

  • 101-200

  • 201-300

  • 301-400

(only voters can see the answers for privacy.)

And lastly for the travelers.

Would you be interested in a weekend package including after party, accomodation and a day of sight seeing?

  • Yes

  • No

  • Write an answer

(only voters can see the answers for privacy.)

So by these questions you can already tell a little bit about the scope of the dream.

Someone had an idea to request that their company pay for it and so I'm sharing that so that if you are thinking the same, you can let me know if that's an option.

Additionally, we will also be approaching bigger companies to see if they are interested in sponsoring and or collaborating. Do you or your company have potential to be added to this list? Get in touch. Any and all ideas can be considered.

The main awarding event will remain free and online, but that doesn't mean we cant have a physical accompanying event.

Another cool idea is to have some of the award winners give a talk or workshop. If you think this could be interesting for you, you know what to do.

Here you may RSVP to the DiF event

Or on LinkedIn

Finally why don't you nominate someone?

It's easy, just click the nominate button and fill in the form. Ten questions then you're set. We do ask for a link or reference that demonstrates the reason for the award.

All the links can be found on the Awards page and you can also find an image that you may share with the person who you've nominated. We will post in the Design in Focus channels also and try to tag the person.

This is what the sharable image looks like that you may find on the Awards Page.

Which we will also share in Design in Focus HQ

Thank you for reading, and also for answering the polls if you have :)
