The entries were judged on the use of space and how the subject was portrayed.
The jury selected the best professional and emerging designers for their achievements. Judging was rigorous, with winners receiving publication of their work in the International Design Awards Book of Designs.
Kiyomi was founded in Jackson in 2013 by Heidi Flynn Barnett and Robin C. Dietrick.

The annual competition recognizes, honors and promotes legendary design visionaries and uncovers emerging talents in architecture, interior, product, graphic and fashion design on a global level.
