Two weeks to go until Dezeen Awards 2022 opens for entries

Dezeen Awards turns five this year! The 2022 programme opens for entries on 8 February. Subscribe to our newsletter to get regular updates about this year's awards.

Now in its fifth year, Dezeen Awards celebrates the world's best architecture, interiors and design and has become the benchmark for international design excellence as well as being the ultimate accolade for architects and designers across the globe.

Last year we had over 4,700 entries from 86 different countries. Read more about our past winners here.

We have a wide range of categories. Following their success in 2021 we are keeping our sustainability and media categories, rewarding architects and designers who are reducing their impact on the environment and celebrating digital work across architecture, interiors and design.

Our entry prices remain as low as possible making Dezeen Awards accessible to smaller studios and maintaining its status as one of the most affordable programmes in the industry. Over 60 per cent of the entries in 2021 were submitted by companies with 10 employees or fewer, further cementing Dezeen's role in championing emerging architects and designers.

Since our inaugural awards in 2018 we've been joined by esteemed industry professionals including Norman Foster, Virgil Abloh, Alison Brooks, Farshid Moussavi, Frida Escobedo, Patrik Schumacher and Rafael Vinoly. Look out for the first jury announcement in February to find out who will be on the panel this year.

Over the years we've held events at the Tate and Ennismore Sessions House. Responding to challenges brought on by the pandemic in 2020 and 2021 resulted in incredible video shows produced by the Dezeen studio team, and hosted by Lionheart and Nelly Ben Hayoun. Stay tuned to hear our big plans for 2022.

At the annual awards ceremony each of our winners will receive a bespoke trophy designed by Eindhoven-based studio Atelier NL, made from the wood of felled London trees.
