Run your own open call design challenge

After six years of running challenges, we’ve welcomed over 7,000 applicants and have honed the art and science of open calls, from the design research, brand identity, application platforms and marketing campaign to the judging criteria, juries and expert bootcamps. If you are hosting a competition or open call related to climate innovation or design, we can support you in the programme and communications, aligning with your priorities for topics and geographical areas.
