Calling All Design Students!



We are now accepting submissions from design students as a way of giving back to the creative community and promoting new designers.

The submission guidelines are straightforward. On the right-hand-side of this page you’ll see a list of our most popular design categories including Photography, Web Design, Video, Illustration, Animation and more. What we’re looking for is examples of your work that fit any of these categories. If you don’t see your particular category, simply let us know and submit your work anyway.

We receive thousands of visitors to our site each month who are here to see one thing – great design inspiration. We’d love to showcase your work alongside our other posts.

What do YOU get out of this? A FREE showcase on The Inspiration Blog which is visited by thousands of creative eye-balls each month who share via number of social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, and more. That’s some great exposure!
