Babitha was a Jury Team member in the Design for Social Impact category of the 2015 Core77 Design Awards, which honors the most innovative, creative and forward thinking design projects every year. The jury captain for Design for Social Impact was design thinking and sustainability expert John Thackara (Director, Doors of Perception), and he had Babitha on his team along with Gill Wildman (Co-founder and Principal at Plot London) and Dr. Mathilda Tham (Design Professor at Linnaeus University, Sweden).
The Core77 Design Awards (in its 5th year) is a celebration of excellence in all areas of design. The program enlists an international jury of design experts to honor those who present creative, innovative and forward-thinking designs across 14 traditional and progressive categories. Students and professionals alike are invited to enter their work so that established, as well as up-and-coming designers can gain visibility and recognition from the global design community. Winners of the Core77 Design Awards receive yearlong publicity across the Core77 network, a trophy, and free entrance to the 2015 Core77 Conference. Winners will be announced by June 2015.
