RSA Student Design Awards 2022-2023 Competition

The 2022-2023 cycle of the RSA Student Design Awards – global student competition, has been scheduled.

Students and recent graduates are going to once again be challenged to tackle pressing social, environmental and economic issues through design thinking.

This time, RSA will again present fresh new briefs for pressing social, environmental and economic issues that need to be addressed through design thinking. Each brief puts a real world social problem in the hands of the next generation of designers – and today there is no shortage of complex and systemic challenges that desperately need creative approaches.

Winners will be selected for each brief and award winners will be invited to the Awards Ceremony – scheduled for 28th June 2023. Winning works will also be presented on the RSA Student Design Awards website.

The competition is open to undergraduate and postgraduate students enrolled at any higher education institution, college or university anywhere in the world. New graduates can also enter within a year of graduating, and we accept entries from individuals and teams.

Responses can come from any discipline or combination of disciplines, and can take any form – from product, communication and service proposals to spatial, environmental and experience solutions.

The RSA Student Design Awards is a competition for emerging designers that’s been running since 1924.
