Speculative filmmaker Young joins us this year as head judge for the Dezeen Awards 2022 media categories.

The media categories award the best architecture photography, video and visualisations plus websites for studios and brands. The categories will reward mastery in digital communication across the industry.

"It's our responsibility as designers if we value the ideas that we're trying to put into the world, that we explore all the mechanisms of media as a way to disseminate our ideas more widely," Young said to Dezeen.

Australian-born film director and architect Young works within the boundaries of architecture, film, storytelling and fiction. He is co-founder of Tomorrows Thoughts Today, an urban futures think tank exploring the local and global implications of new technologies and Unknown Fields, a nomadic research studio.

Young is also a BAFTA-nominated producer and has worked with platforms including Channel 4, TED, SxSW, the New York Metropolitan Museum, The Royal Academy, the BBC and The Guardian.

For the second year, environmental author Treggiden will head up the judging panel for the sustainability categories. The environmental design writer, author and speaker champions a circular approach to craft and design.

Our three sustainability categories celebrate studios that are making positive environmental and social contributions. These projects will be judged by a selected panel of sustainability experts from the world of architecture and design.

Last year Treggiden told Dezeen: "As such an influential platform, it's important for Dezeen to take the lead on issues such as this."

Treggiden has written five books, established an award-winning blog and an independent magazine, and has written for The Guardian, Viewpoint, Design Milk, Crafts Magazine, Elle Decoration and Monocle24.

She is the founder and first president of women's network Bloom and is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a trustee of the Leach Pottery.
