Authors are invited to address the theme through multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary or intradisciplinary knowledge of colour, and are also encouraged to consider their own colour expertise to enhance awareness to Colour and Human Comfort.

Suomen väriyhdistyksen Iiris-­palkinto jaetaan kevätpäivän tasauksena (21. maaliskuuta) tunnustuksena teoksesta tai tapahtumasta, jossa värien taitava käyttö on huomattavalla tavalla lisännyt ympäristön viihtyisyyttä, tuonut myönteisiä elämyksiä, parantanut elämän laatua tai lisännyt turvallisuutta. Jakamalla tunnustuksen yhdistys haluaa kiinnittää huomiota värin käytön mahdollisuuksiin inhimillisen elämän ja visuaalisen ympäristön keskeisenä tekijänä.

AIC International Colour Association on ehdottanut kevätpäivän tasausta kansainväliseksi väripäiväksi. Päivän tarkoitus on juhlistaa väriä ja kiinnittää siihen huomiota ihmiskuntaa yhdistävänä ilmiönä sekä nostaa esiin väriin liittyviä tapahtumia ja saavutuksia.
