The Society operates a range of awards for design study and practice. Awards range from certificates acknowledging achievement, prizes for competitions and medals of distinction. In addition to making its own awards the Society collaborates with others in developing, supporting and judging awards.

The Society would like to hear from any organisation or individual wishing to offer, sponsor or partner an award or competition in any sphere of design activity. If you are organising or thinking of organising a design award you may also wish to consult or invite representatives of the Society to sit on your judging panel.
