A design system only comes to life when it’s used to create meaningful experiences. The Material Design Awards recognize best-in-class designs from our community, and honor the people who make them. We’re pleased to announce that for our fifth annual awards, we’ll be accepting self-nominations for the finest applications of Material Design in 2019.
Only self-nominations are accepted, with submitters needing permission to do so from their company. You can submit in all four categories as long as a separate entry is made. The form includes two questions, but it’s otherwise a straightforward process.
