The Macktez Summer Stipend is a grant for creative development. Each year we try to reach out to the many junior designers, interns, and other creative individuals we come across every day for whom a little extra cash could be the difference between a great idea and a great, finished project.

We have a simple set of criteria: originality, relevance, and conviction. And we’d prefer a project already underway that $500 would push across the finish line. This year we’ll also be relying on our great panelists’ guts and good sense: Harry Allen, Doug Jaeger, Michael Maharam, Richard Poulin, Lucy Sisman, Robert Valentine, and David Weeks.
