2021 World Accreditation Day Contest Winners

10 May 2021

IAF and ILAC have selected three winning designs in the 2021 IAF and ILAC World Accreditation Day poster contest.

IAF and ILAC are pleased to announce the three winning designs in the IAF/ILAC 2021 World Accreditation Day (#WAD2021) poster contest. This year’s contest invited contestants to explore the WAD 2021 theme of Accreditation: Supporting the Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


Congratulations to Irene González, Soledad Pacheco and Denise Díaz, who won the first place prize of USD 1500. In their design, the accreditation infrastructure has been re-imagined as a colourful tree that supports each SDGs within its branches.


More information about the design team and their inspiration is available here. The winning poster is available for download here, as are the WAD 2021 brochure and joint statement from the IAF and ILAC Chairs.


We would also like to congratulate our second and third place winners in this contest, Japhet Tolosa-Celis and Laura Uraine, who won USD 500 each. Learn more about these designers and their posters here.


Unfortunately, due to very few submissions being received in the video contest, no winner was selected.


Thank you to all participants!
