Entries are invited for the SDGs Design International Awards 2019 in Japan. The SDGs design contest invites students from all over the world to use their design skills to create new, bold, and innovative solutions. You can help reshape the future of humanity with your design. The younger generation can use their design and creative skills to find solutions for what is the most urgent scenario in human history. With that strong conviction, we created these awards.

Global society is increasingly expecting great things from design. Motivated by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we’re seeing efforts all over the world to solve problems seemingly unrelated to design like hunger, poverty, and inadequate food supply. Design’s role has moved beyond just the use of colors and shapes.

The top winner of the international design competition will receive a prize of ¥300,000. The competition is open to all post-secondary students interested in design.
