The RSA Student Design Awards scheme has rewarded craft, ingenuity, insight, communication and social benefit for 88 years.
The RSA Student Design Awards competition issues briefs to young designers to demonstrate how the insights and processes of design can solve 21st century problems. We work with leading design educators develop the skill and confidence of students while demonstrating to others the power of a design-led approach.
The RSA’s central mission is to foster good citizenship by closing the gap between our everyday behaviour and the future to which we aspire.
