About the Competition:

In collaboration with recognised SBID universities, with the support of industry members, sponsors and our competition partner, Be Open Think Tankstudents across the creative industries are invited to submit their end of year project and propose their course leader with the aim of winning coveted prizes.

SBID created this new life changing, equal opportunity design competition in a bid to showcase emerging talent in each industry as well as providing the link in nurturing relationships between those in study and the working industry.

Judges and sponsors will present the overall winner with a cash prize of £30,000; five category winners with £1,000 each and a university recognition at the awards ceremony held on 29 November at the House of Commons in London.
