The BETTER FUTURE Awards provide recognition across the design spectrum and are open to design professionals, as well as those who commission design.


The awards are cross-disciplinary, and are currently held across four continents. They celebrate and honour the role of design and the skills of designers, while recognising all aspects of the design process, including product, digital, interiors, architecture, graphic, textile, events, fashion, advertising, food, experience, and publications.
