Young Designer/Architect of the Year

The Scottish Design Awards are turning to the next generation of architecture and design talent by opening our doors to the best young practitioners 

This all-new category has been formed to recognise, encourage and reward individuals who show that age is no barrier to making your mark on more established entrants.

Submission must include an example of their best, independent work, a short description for their career accomplishments and the reason for nomination.

Nominate yourself, or someone else in the design industry, to be assessed by our judging panel and the opportunity to earn the recognition and appreciation of your peers.

Nominated designers must be under 30 years old while nominations will be accepted for architects under 35 years of age. 

Nominations are free.
