Design Ventura 2022–2023

Calling all young designers! Take part in the next Design Ventura, our national schools' competition to create product ideas open for students aged 13–16 in partnership with Deutsche Bank’s global youth engagement programme Born to Be.

What to expect

Now entering its thirteenth year, our annual design competition invites schools to compete and have a winning product idea manufactured and sold in the Design Museum shop. Since 2010 over 128,000 students have participated in the project.

This year's competition brief will go live on 5 September 2022 and will be set by Selasi Setufe MBE, senior architect and innovation sites manager at Born to Be, and co-founder of Black Females in Architecture.

The competition submission deadline is 23 February 2023. Shortlisted entries will attend a pitching day event at Deutsche bank in March 2023.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at the museum at the end of April 2023. This will be followed by a two-month exhibition of shortlisted and winning entries.

The winning team will work with professional designers to develop and manufacture their product idea to be sold in the Design Museum Shop from Autumn 2023. v Visit ventura.designmuseum.org or click the link below to register your school to enter the competition.

Design Ventura is delivered in partnership with Deutsche Bank.
