Core77 Design Awards

If you’re pretty chuffed with the design work you submitted in 2015, then enter it into the Core77 Design Awards and have it reviewed by design leaders from Airbnb, the National Institute of Design and the NY Times R&D Lab.

The Awards

To the victor go the spoils, but here are benefits to simply entering your designs in the Core77 Design Awards, whether you win or not.

Here's how it works

  1. create an account with Core77
  2. complete an entry form for each project
  3. submit each program
  4. pay your entry fee

You can enter as many projects as you want and enter a project into as many categories as applies.

Your work is given to a group of design experts who might otherwise never see your ideas, process and perspective. This is a valuable opportunity that could bring you career changing insight to your work. Design experts include Joe Gebbia of Airbnb, Pradyumna Vyas of the National Institute of Design and Alexis Lloyd of the NY Times R&D Lab.


The Professional and Student winners of each category will receive the Core77 Design Awards trophy, and all honourees will be published in the 2016 awards gallery and across the Core77 online network. This means your name and your work are showcased across the Core77 blog and social networks for the entire year. That's an audience of a few hundred thousand people who will become familiar with your designs.

The Community Choice Award is an honour decided by the broader design community. After Jury results have been announced, the Awards are opened to public voting so that, of the Honourees, a "Winner of Winners" can be chosen. The grand prize winner of the Community Choice Award will receive the title, plus airfare and accommodations for one to attend the 2016 Core77 Conference in Los Angeles.
