Coronavirus information

As we all adjust to restrictions on movement we recognise the logistical and organisational challenges that remote working presents.

In light of feedback received from many who have been sidetracked by events, we have decided to extend our entry deadline to 22 May to provide an additional few weeks breathing space for those unable to get submissions ready in time.


No physical boards need be produced and delivered this year.
If you are planning to submit physical samples of your work, the date for this will be announced when the current ‘lockdown’ situation is lifted.

In an environment of ever-increasing specialisation, the world can seem to play out in fast-forward all around us, ensuring that the dizzying task of making sense of these changes and documenting progress becomes both harder and more important as each year goes by.

The Scottish Design Awards stand at the apex of this evolution by drawing upon a unique and distinct medley of talent from Urban Realm and The Drum to make sense of a fast-changing world by condensing a year of work under one roof, for one night, in a singular celebration of the best projects drawn from around the country.

Open to all architects, engineers, graphic, interior and digital designers who have delivered class-leading work we seek to serve as a unifying force and a champion of best practice, sustainability and innovation.
