One week to go until entries for Dezeen Awards 2021 open

Dezeen Awards 2021 will open for entries on 2 February, with the discounted early-entry period running until 31 March. Enter your project or studio from next week on and sign up to the Dezeen Awards newsletter to receive more information!

Now in its fourth year, Dezeen Awards celebrates the world's best architecture, interiors and design and has become the benchmark for international design excellence and the ultimate accolade for architects and designers everywhere.

The low entry prices are designed to attract smaller studios and avoid categories being dominated by large companies that can afford to enter multiple categories, making Dezeen Awards one of the most affordable programmes in the industry.

Every longlisted and shortlisted project gets its own page on the site, and shortlisted projects will be given full editorial coverage on Dezeen.

Shortlisted entries are also automatically entered into the Dezeen Awards public vote, where the projects and studios that are most popular with or readers will win a special certificate.

All Dezeen Awards winners receive a bespoke hand-made trophy designed by Atelier NL and a certificate.
