The 25 shortlisted projects, which are in the running for awards in five different media project categories, are located across 13 different countries including India, Sweden, Malta, China and Australia.
The top three represented countries are the United Kingdom with seven shortlisted entries, followed by the Netherlands with five and then by China and France, which are tied with two each.
Five projects are shortlisted in each media category ranging from a film that documents the plight of young homeless people living in poor quality emergency accommodation to an interactive user experience for finding the ideal chair.
The shortlists were scored by our media jury, which includes digital artist Andrés Reisinger, editor-in-chief of WePresent Holly Fraser, architectural photographer Simone Bossi and filmmakers Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine.
All shortlists to be announced this week
The studio shortlist will be announced tomorrow as the final category of Dezeen Awards 2022 to be revealed. Architecture and interiors kickstarted the week, followed by the design shortlist on Wednesday and the sustainability and media shortlists today.
