Mmmm Chips…

With the entry deadline closing within a week’s time, I thought it fitting to have a look at some of the best from last year’s winners.

Firstly though, for those of you who are not aware of the Chip Shop Awards, they are seen as awards which recognise creativity with no boundaries and no rules. So, based on that description the winners were interesting to say the least.

Here’s a selection of last year’s nominees.

Chip Shop Awards - Virgin Mobile
Chip Shop Awards - Window Cleaner
Chip Shop Awards - Sat Nav
Chip Shop Awards - E45

I personally think these awards are the perfect way for designers to express their creativity while still attracting recognition from fellow designers. It is not always possible to express yourself fully if working to a strict client brief, but the Chip Shop Awards are a nice break from this reality.

The Chip Shop Awards are not solely filled with comedic designs, there are also some very hard hitting pieces tackling very emotional issues. You can view all of last year’s nominations here.

The winners for the 2009 Awards are not due to be announced until June but I for one can’t wait!
