One month left to enter Dezeen's Redesign the World competition with Epic Games

There are just 30 days left to enter our Redesign the World competition, which calls for new ideas to rethink planet Earth. Enter now before the contest closes for entries on 15 September.

Launched at the end of July in partnership with Epic Games, the Redesign the World competition is looking for radical solutions to ensure our planet remains habitable for many years to come.

The contest is free to enter for anyone over the age of 18 of any profession and from any country in the world.

Redesign the World judges announced

Last week we announced the expert judging panel that will  the competition. The panel comprises White Arkitekter CEO Alexandra Hagen, structural engineer Hanif Kara and speculative architect Liam Young, alongside Belinda Ercan, Twinmotion product marketing manager at Epic Games, and Dezeen founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.

The 15 best proposals selected by the judges will be published on Dezeen in November during our Dezeen 15 online festival celebrating Dezeen's 15th anniversary.

A top prize of £5,000 will be awarded for first place, £2,500 for second place, £1,000 for third place and £500 each for the 12 remaining finalists selected by the judging panel.

How to enter

Entrants must produce a 3D visualisation of their concepts using architectural visualisation tool Twinmotion, submitting a video animation and still image of their concept, along with up to 500 words of text about their proposal.

Redesign the World is primarily an ideas competition. Judges will be looking for visionary concepts and are less concerned with technical mastery of the Twinmotion software. However, the quality of the execution of the idea will also be considered.

Dezeen hosted an online workshop on how to use Twinmotion to help participants with their entries.

Live Twinmotion talk this week

To coincide with the competition, Dezeen and Epic Games will host a live online panel discussion on Thursday this week, which will explore how visualisation tools such as Twinmotion are transforming architecture.

Moderated by Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs, the talk will explore the new possibilities that real-time 3D tools such as Twinmotion, which is powered by the Unreal Engine game engine developed by Epic Games, open up to architects.

Panellists will discuss how access to this new digital technology is transforming the way that architects work and communicate their projects, how video game design and architectural visualisation are merging, and what the future holds for the industry.

The talk takes place at 2:00pm London time and is free to watch online on Dezeen.
