Multiple times every year, we share our favorite winning designs (you can see them here) and it never gets old to hear from a designer excited about being named a winner and seeing their designs shared everywhere. From furniture to lighting, packaging to games, fashion to architecture, there are no shortages of categories you can enter under – which means there is definitely a category for your design and the opportunity to share it with the world! Besides a unique trophy, there are many added prizes for the winning designers, including the rare opportunity to selling your design. You even get a free design score, which tells you how you’d fare in the contest, just from registering! You have nothing to lose but everything to gain.

The deadline is fast approaching, so we’re sharing some of our favorite winning designs from last year’s contest in hopes that it’ll inspire you to get your submissions in ASAP. Check back in May when we share our favorites from this year’s competition!
