Gift for Life Teams Up With NYIGF on Design Competition

NEW YORK-Gift for Life, the gift, stationery and home decor industries' charitable organization, has partnered with the New York International Gift Fair for a new designer competition that will debut at the summer 2010 market.

Competing for a People's Choice Award and a Designer Distinction Award, emerging and established designers are invited to submit product design concepts for the inaugural theme of "Make Change," for which designers must reinvent the piggy bank design icon or the more contemporary digital coin collectors and counters.

Applications must be submitted online by June 15 through nyigf.com/GiftforLife.aspx. The winners will receive complimentary exhibition space for the winter 2011 NYIGF.

Revenue generated through the competition will benefit DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS.
