Beazley Designs of the Year
Now in its ninth year, Beazley Designs of the Year celebrates design that promotes or delivers change, enables access, extends design practice or captures the spirit of the year. Someday the other museums will be showing this stuff.
"We never miss this show. Every iteration turns up products that are life-saving, lovely to look at or just so clever you really, really wish they’d been your idea." Time Out
"It's a worthy, endlessly intriguing offering, and an insightful snapshot of just how forward thinking our creative industries are in 2016." Wallpaper
"Now in its ninth year, the award and its exhibition have become a kind of ‘state of the nation’ for design – a fascinating way to gauge the current focus areas of the design world, as well as reflecting wider cultural and societal issues." WGSN

nominees over 6 categories
This category represents the fullest range of the built environment from small scale domestic to public parks.
A wide ranging category that includes projects that may touch on other categories but are included here because it is their digital dimension that makes them interesting.
Everything from student graduation shows to established fashion houses, this category includes the most important collections, accessories, fashion shows, exhibitions, films, costumes and individual pieces.
2D work where graphic design is the key to the project’s success – this could be beautifully executed packaging, books, magazines, identities, digital, films, animation, street art, exhibition design, posters or typefaces.
This category includes furniture, unique and mass produced items including toys, packaging, lighting, technology, homewares and healthcare. A seemingly endless range of outstanding objects have been included in this category.
This category looks at more than planes, trains and automobiles (though, these are important too).
