Student Competition Ukraine

Get me 2 the top Ukraine

Get Me 2 the Top Ukraine is a competition held for students and recent graduates who studied or recently graduated from an interior design course or equivalent at degree level in Ukraine.

Developed to find innovative, talented students, the competition aims to nurture relationships between the country’s finest new recruits and potential employers, locally and nationally, bridging their gap between learning and earning.

Working closely with industry partners, the internship scheme will allow students to develop key relationships, giving them the tools and advice they need to kick-start their careers.

The competition is separated into the following categories:

– Residential design

– Public Space

– Product design

Judging Process:

The competition consisted of a two-tiered judging process. The first saw a technical panel of judges from Ukraine select finalists in all categories which was passed on to a panel of judges in the UK who decided upon the winning entries and the overall winner.


The overall winner will receive a 3 month (all expenses paid) internship with a leading UK Design practice. Winners from all 3 categories will be given a half yearlong virtual or full-time mentorship with minimal salary in a leading design agency in Ukraine.

Each winner will also receive an honorary SBID international associate membership, valid for one year and have their project featured in the relevant issue of eSociety magazine.


The SBID Get me 2 the top competition is open to all students and graduates who have studied or are currently studying an interior design or interior architecture course at degree level in Ukraine. Students are still eligible to enter the competition 2 years post graduating/graduation.


The deadline is now closed.
