2018 Award Winners

rd+d’s panel of judges spent an entire day reviewing submissions, taking notes, asking questions, advocating for their favorites and sometimes changing each other’s minds in order to narrow the entries down to these chosen few. Projects were scored based on submission criteria and the judges’ knowledge and experience.

Thanks to everyone who took time to submit projects for consideration.
