Dezeen Awards 2021 media categories

Media categories

The Dezeen Awards media categories will reward excellence in the way architecture, interiors and design are communicated and promoted.

The five categories will reward architecture photography, video and visualisations plus websites for studios and brands.

The architecture photography, video and visualisations categories celebrate image-making while the two website categories – one for architecture and design studios and one for brands – will recognise the way the sector is adapting to new business realities due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The judges will be looking for beautiful, engaging content and technical mastery across the five categories. 

These categories cost just £50 each to enter.

Media categories are just £40 during early entry period which closes 31 March. They then will cost £60 in the late entry period between 2-9 June.
