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

The longlists will be published between 10 and 13 August. Each longlisted entry will be announced in a post on Dezeen and will receive their own page on the Dezeen Awards website.


The shortlisting stage of the judging process will take place in July and August, 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 early September to let you know if you've been shortlisted. Remember, we'll be publishing all shortlisted projects on Dezeen.

Master Jury day

In previous years, around 15 judges gathered in London to convene and ratify the suggested project category winners and select the overall winners in the architecture, interiors and design project categories.

This year, the master jury day will still take place but the format may have to be different due to coronavirus. We will keep everyone updated about this and make an announcement closer to the time.

Winners announcements

Winners will be announced online in October. We're not sure what the format of our party will be this year but if you subscribe to our newsletter you'll receive all the latest news and information.
