15 Feb 2023

IAF and ILAC are pleased to announce the three winning designs in the IAF/ILAC 2023 World Accreditation Day (#WAD2023) poster contest, which received a total of fifty-one entries. This year’s contest invited contestants to explore the theme of Accreditation: Supporting the Future of Global Trade.


Congratulations to Vivek Vardhan, who won the first place prize of USD 1500. His design, inspired by the Sanskrit phrase ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’, which means ‘The World Is One Family’, highlights the importance of accreditation in promoting quality around the world and enabling trade as the global economy emerges from the challenges of COVID-19. Learn more about Mr. Vardhan and his inspiration here.

We would also like to congratulate our second and third place winners in this contest, Zhang Meng and Joshua Egahi-Ojo Alhassan, who won USD 500 each. Learn more about these designers and their posters here.
