During the event, an exhibition titled One Year On will also display work by 80 designers in their first year of business.

Highlights include kinetic jewellery, illustrations based on vintage matchbox artwork, sustainability in design, modular furniture and brutalist-inspired ceramics.

The exhibited work, such as Benjamin Craven's prints, will be available to purchase or commission, so visitors to One Year On can buy directly from designers at the show.

Dezeen has collaborated with New Designers for five years running and is the official media partner for this year's event.

Each winner will receive a pair of standard day tickets, allowing access on a day of their choice to either part one or two of the exhibition.
