Dezeen Awards is an annual awards programme identifying the world's best architecture, interiors, design and sustainability projects, as well as the studios and the individual architects and designers producing the most outstanding work.

Organised by Dezeen, the world's most influential architecture and design website, Dezeen Awards is now in its sixth year and has become the benchmark for international design excellence and the ultimate accolade for architects and designers everywhere.

There are 39 project categories that you can enter, including: Infrastructure and transport, Housing, Mixed-use project, Sustainable design (building product), and Material innovation.

For the project categories, judges are looking for entries that best fit the three judging criteria. These are:

  • Beautiful: does it look amazing? We know that beauty is subjective but our judges will be looking out for aesthetic rigour, good detailing and good use of materials.
  • Innovative: does it incorporate original thinking or address a problem in a new way? We don't mean that every entry has to reinvent the wheel but we will be looking for evidence of fresh approaches and new ideas.
  • Beneficial: is it useful and considerate to both people and planet? Your project doesn't have to set out to save the world but it should show respect and consideration for users and the environment.

Entry deadlines:

29 March 2023: early entry deadline

1 June 2023: standard entry deadline

8 June 2023: late entry deadline
