The SEED Network recently launched the 2nd Annual SEED Awards for excellence in Public Interest Design to showcase and promote projects that help create socially, economically, and environmentally healthy communities. The projects will be judged using “SEED”: Social Economic Environmental Design”® a standard evaluation to measure the positive impact of design projects.

Sixwinners will be announced January 27, 2012. Each winner will receive an all-expense paid trip to present at Structures for Inclusion conference at the University of Austin in Austin, Texas March 24-25, and a $1,000 cash prize. Each winning project will also be included in a documentary series by The UpTake. More competition information after the break.

Structure for Inclusion (SFI) is the twelfth conference in an annual series covering the role of architects as change agents in overcoming the most pressing social, economic and environmental challenges in the world today. SFI goes beyond the “green” design movement to include the social and economic impacts of design. The first conference was held at Princeton University in 2000 and was called “Design for the 98% without Architects.”

SFI 12 will bring together design professionals and students, community activists and non-profit organizations alike in an intense two day discussion, March 24 and 25.

The SEED Competition is being organized by the Social Economic Environmental Design Network, founded in 2005 through support of the Harvard Loeb Fellowship. The application deadline for Parts I A&B is MIDNIGHT, January 16, 2012.
