Short description

The MUSE Design Awards 2021, a part of the MUSE Awards Program, which was created by the International Awards Associate (IAA), now is calling for entries!

IAA’s inception was based on a mission to honor, promote and encourage creativity by providing a new standard of excellence for evaluating media design production and distribution. IAA’s mission has largely shaped MDA’s goals.

Fundamentally, the MUSE Design Awards is an international competition for designers whose craftsmanship shift paradigms. Their ingenuity and thorough works leave others in awe, and in so doing redefine boundaries and scope – much like a muse.

The competition 2021 theme is ’Conquer Change’.
Time stops for no one. Its passage brings change, and creates history. Despite the ever-changing nature of our world, we continue to adapt and overcome. Here at MUSE, we recognize those who reign above change, with creativity that pens history and designs which stand against the test of time.

A MUSE creates with intent. Their works embody their considerations of the future, while serving as waypoints for those who come after. The MUSE Design Awards honors design professionals of various expertise, whose works shoulder the weight of the future, despite the unknown.
