Competitions and Contests

Community engagement, saving money, raising awareness.


These are just a few of the reasons organizations and companies give for organizing design competitions. However, design competitions are not the best way to go about achieving meaningful and sustainable design solutions.


To aid in the advocacy against design competitions, the RGD created Ethical Best Practices for Design Competitions/Contests. Share this pdf with organizations and companies hosting design competitions to encourage them to explore more ethical alternatives.
