Design and Architecture

Sponsored by: Maber


Design submissions can be for any 3-D design and could include furniture, homewares, toys and games, jewellery, consumer goods, electronic gadgets, sustainable products, sports and healthcare equipment, packaging, transportation, pottery, modelling…the opportunities are endless and there is no theme, so you can be super creative! Past winners have included submitted entries including pottery, light fittings, upholstery and fabric design.

Architecture submissions can be architectural proposals or designs of any kind relating to the built environment. Entries do not have to be buildings, they could be landscape design proposals or urban interventions. Past winners have included interventions in derelict buildings, a school across the canal, sculptures in Nottingham’s Market Square and vertical farms. For the first time your proposals do not have to be based in or around Nottingham!

We are looking for creative entries showing innovative 3-D designs.

Your submission can be either physical or digital but should be no more than two A2 sheets. Digital entries should be high resolution PDF documents. You can also submit physical models or objects as part of your entry. The online entry form must be completed and physical entries must be delivered to Loxley House, Station Street, NG2 3NG by 12noon on Monday 23 March 2020 (Monday – Friday between 9am and 5pm). Entrants must notify the YCA by email in advance that they are delivering the entries to Loxley House.
