2021 PAVE Student Design Competition: Meet the Street

The Planning and Visual Education Partnership (PAVE) Student Design Competition, now in its 27th year, is open for entries for 2021.

The PAVE Student Design Competition promotes “real world” design experience for college-level students interested in pursuing careers in the retail design industry.

Students involved in retail planning, visual merchandising, interior design, branding, and similar programs are encouraged to participate in designing a small-scale intervention/idea that can be incorporated in any community-oriented situation (sidewalk, street, plaza, open public space, etc.) which might address an issue or to enhance what may be existing.

Students will explore and address the aspect of retail, scalability, materiality, technology, accessibility, and sustainability.

This annual international competition is open exclusively to undergraduate and graduate college students involved in retail planning, design, visual merchandising, branding, and similar programs.

The students with the Top 5 concepts will be awarded $1,000 each.
