What’s Young Designers?

Partner with IBA to host our annual awards to honor young designers from top-rated art and design colleges across the U.S. and Canada. Get involved by sponsoring to foster young talent and keep beauty creative. Our annual competition is a uniquely innovative curriculum-based program where the faculty closely integrates the competition directives into their students’ coursework. Students have two months to create an innovative beauty product on a designated package type which
changes each year.

Each student entry must fully define the brand concept with industry-compliant label and package designs. A panel of industry professionals judges designs submitted by each participating school, and then cash awards are presented during our awards dinner. Most importantly, the students get a chance to view our industry, understand its inner workings, and connect with its leaders – like you! Learn more here.

This program allows both existing industry professionals and future innovators to come together. Together, we can keep beauty creative.

Winning the Young Designer award has opened doors for me in the U.S. as well as internationally. Through visiting various companies and traveling to Spain, I have a well-rounded understanding of how a product is ideated, manufactured, and packaged. This competition has connected me with inspirational individuals that are excited to see me succeed. I am eager to showcase my new perspective in all I do with the hope of sharing it with others.
