DCC Directory of Design Competitions, Awards, Associations & Residencies


Here is a list of design competitions and awards which we are building as a resource for designers, managers and students everywhere. Individual competitions listed here have up to $20,500,000 in prizes.

Competitions are a good way to measure your skills or your student’s skills against the best designers out there and to push the boundaries of what is possible. If you are aware of competitions that are not listed or links are broken or any competitions are permanently closed, let us know by filling out the contact page link on the top menu and we will update the list.
