Dezeen Awards 2019 receives more than 4,500 entries

Thanks to everyone who entered Dezeen Awards 2019! Here's what happens next.

We've had a huge response with over 4,500 entries, an increase of almost 25 per cent on last year's inaugural Dezeen Awards. If you entered, read on to find out the next steps.

Entries have come from 88 different countries on six continents, including Brunei, Canada, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Egypt, Estonia, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Lebanon, Moldova, Panama, Taiwan and Zimbabwe.


Longlisting, which is the first stage of the judging process, has now begun and will continue throughout June.

All submitted entries will be reviewed by Dezeen's editorial team and a panel of design experts, who will use their skill and knowledge to select around 25 entries in each category.

The longlists will be published in early July.


The shortlisting stage of the judging process will take place in July and will involve our star-studded panel of 75 judges, who will select a shortlist of between four and eight entries in each project category using an online scoring system.

We'll be in touch in September to let you know if you've been shortlisted.

Master jury day

Around 15 judges will gather in London to convene and ratify the suggested project category winners. They will also select overall winners in the architecture, interiors and design project categories.

Shortlist party

We'll be throwing a party to celebrate the shortlisted projects, products and studios vying for accolades in the second edition of Dezeen's awards programme.

We'll provide more details closer to the date. If you haven't already, subscribe to our newsletter to receive the latest news about Dezeen Awards.
