A better way to celebrate 

It won’t come as a great surprise that we’ve decided not to run the scheduled live Awards event in June but instead we are able to offer finalists and winners an enhanced platform to showcase their success, and to ensure that the Design Week Awards can continue to represent and share the best work.

In addition to our printed Winners Book, we will be producing a digital showcase of our finalists promoting their work to the full Design Week readership. It will take the form of a bespoke digital experience, hosted on the site. We’ll be using the reach of Design Week to amplify this as far as possible across all our channels.

We’ll be making sure all our winners get trophies of course and we still have a few more surprises to announce in due course.

This year’s judging process

With the health and safety of our judges and staff in mind, and the practical challenges faced by entrants, we will not be hosting a face-to-face judging day to review physical samples of the work.

Through an online judging system our 30 independent judges will be able to see the work in full and record results. There will be further phone and video conferencing discussions so the process will be as rigorous as ever.

This year we are giving all entrants greater opportunity to submit digital supporting assets to show work in its best possible light — this may be video footage or additional high resolution stills. We have increased the maximum entry file size and number of images you can upload per entry to facilitate this.

We do ask that you apply some selectivity in your submission so that judges are being presented only with information to best supports their understanding your work.

While we want you to be selective we also want to give you the best chance possible to have your work seen in the best light and the best chance of winning.

If you need any further clarification on the above, please get in touch and a member of the Design Week Awards team will contact you as soon as possible:
