Identifing the world's best architecture, interiors and design, as well as the studios and the individual architects and designers producing the most outstanding work.

What is Dezeen Awards?

Dezeen Awards is our new annual awards programme. It will identify the world's best architecture, interiors and design, as well as the studios and the individual architects and designers producing the most outstanding work.

Organised by Dezeen, the world's most popular and influential architecture and design website, Dezeen Awards will be the benchmark for international design excellence and the ultimate accolade for architects and designers everywhere.

How to enter Dezeen Awards

For details on how to enter, visit the how to enter page. The page also contains information about entry fees and deadlines. For more detailed information, please refer to the terms and conditions page.

Why enter Dezeen Awards?

Dezeen Awards is organised by Dezeen and judged by a panel consisting of leading figures from the design world. This means that Dezeen Awards will have unprecedented credibility and reach.

Every shortlisted and winning entry will be published on our awards site and shared via our huge social media and newsletter audiences, bringing significant recognition to successful entrants. Shortlisted and winning studios will be able to promote the fact that they are Dezeen Awards winners. In addition, winners will get a trophy and a certificate.

What's different about Dezeen Awards

There are lots of architecture and design awards out there – but Dezeen Awards will be different.

First, our low entry prices are designed to attract smaller firms, and avoid categories being dominated by large studios that can afford to enter multiple categories.

Second, our judging criteria have been carefully considered to ensure that winning projects are not only beautiful and innovative but also strive to benefit users and the environment. We don't believe that good design today can ignore issues such as social impact or sustainability and we will be looking for projects that incorporate positive thinking in this area.

Third, our awards include categories for architecture, interiors and design – the three key areas that Dezeen writes about. This means that Dezeen Awards will be a comprehensive annual survey of the best work across the major fields of 3D design.


Dezeen Awards 2018 will be judged by an international panel comprised of 75 leading figures from the architecture and design world.

Judges announced so far include architects David Adjaye and Rossana Hu, interior designers India Mahdavi and Afroditi Krassa, and designers Benjamin Hubert and Formafantasma. More judges will be announced soon.

The judges will be supported by Dezeen's award-winning editorial team. Full details of the judging process can be found on the terms and conditions page.
