Dezeen has teamed up with Epic Games to launch Redesign the World, the ultimate design competition that calls for new ideas to rethink planet Earth.

The competition is free to enter for people over the age of 18 of any profession and from any country in the world. It is open for entries until 15 September 2021.

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

The contest has a top prize of £5,000 and total prize money of £15,000.

We are looking for radical new solutions to ensure that planet Earth remains habitable for hundreds of years to come.

"The problems the world faces are huge in scale and they demand equally epic solutions," said Dezeen founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.

"So we have set the ultimate design challenge and asked architects and designers to redesign the world. We're looking for big, bold ideas that show visionary thinking."

"We firmly believe that design can make the world a better place. We're challenging creatives to come up with ideas that will generate debate, optimism and excitement around the greatest design problem of our time."

Entrants are required to present their concepts using Twinmotion, an architectural visualisation tool powered by Unreal Engine, which is a game engine developed by Epic Games. A free trial version of Twinmotion is available for entrants who do not already use the software.
