LA+ CREATURE Open International Design Ideas Competitions

LA+ CREATURE explores how we can use design to open our cities, our landscapes, and our minds to a more symbiotic existence with other creatures. The brief asks entrants to choose a nonhuman client and design something—a place, a structure, a product, a process, a system—to improve its life and increase human–nonhuman empathy. Your creature can be any species, any size, and live anywhere.   The competition is open to all design disciplines and will be judged by an outstanding interdisciplinary jury panel comprising TIMOTHY MORTON (philosopher and author of "HyperObjects" and "Dark Ecology"), KATE ORFF (designer of NYC’s “Living Breakwaters” and founding principal, SCAPE), RICHARD WELLER (author of "The Atlas for the End of the World" and chair of landscape architecture, UPenn), JENNIFER WOLCH (coauthor of "Animal Geographies" and former dean of design, UC Berkeley), ANDREW GRANT (designer of Singapore’s iconic “Supertrees” and director of Grant Associates, UK), FARRE NIXON (emerging designer at Kounkey Design Initiative), and CHRIS REED (coauthor of "Projective Ecologies" and founding director, Stoss).

London International Creative Competition

Since starting out in 2006, the London International Creative Competition has been recognising and rewarding the world’s most fresh and progressive creative talents. Our artists and designers are connected not by conventions, but by qualities. They work across a diverse range of formats, genres and industries, creating stunning and essential works of art in their respective fields. We’re not looking for anything done by-the-book. We’re looking for work that is as visual as it is vital.

Nature Contest

Nature Contest is the most comprehensive annual contest of ideas inspired by nature. Artists, product designers, engineers, sculptors, technologists, inventors, concept artists, and all those people who observe nature uniquely in their own way- and who can visualize their imagination through sketches, models, drawings, 3D renders or in any other visual media, are invited to participate in this category. Design concepts should be thought-provoking, bold, and inspired directly or indirectly from different processes of nature. Please, check out the illustrations of Leonardo da Vinci and visit NatureGadget.com for early inspiration. It is entirely up to the participants, how they visualize and share their ideas. The only restriction is Two (02) A3 size sheets in landscape orientation.

4th Annual Healthier Design Innovation Contest

For the first year, we are extending the contest to students outside of the United States. To be eligible to enter, you must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree-seeking design program. We will choose winners who exemplify healthy material innovation and advocacy in design. Entries can include models, prototypes, artwork or visual media. We also require documentation of the design process through pictures, drawings/short videos, etc. Another important requirement is an annotated life-cycle diagram summarizing the carbon impact of your design in order to understand how your design responds to the current global climate emergency.
