Design Week Awards 2017 opens for entries

The Design Week Awards is back with a bunch of new awards alongside old favourites to recognise the growing breadth and integration of the industry. It’s time to get entering.


The Design Week Awards 2017 is open for entries and this year we’ve shaken things up, introducing a new format and new categories.

We’re celebrating our 26th Design Week Awards and as ever we’ll be showcasing excellence and innovation from across the design industry. This year they’ll be 24 categories, which have been sorted into five main groups: Communication; Spaces; Digital; Products and Furniture; and Landmark Awards.

The number of digital awards has been increased to give designers working in fields such as augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) the chance to be recognised. Meanwhile our Landmark Awards group will include Social Design, recognising the power of design to drive change and do good.


The Design Week Awards are open to individual designers and design consultancies and agencies as well as clients worldwide.

Our judging panel, which changes every year, is made up of some of the most well respected designers in the UK who will be selecting the most outstanding work from the last year.

The deadline for entries is 8 March, so you’ve got a few weeks to reflect on your best work and enter. You can find full details here.
