A MUSE's creation is never thoughtless. It is crafted meticulously to usher forth new horizons, while serving as waypoints for those who come after. The MUSE Design Awards honors design professionals of various expertise, whose works carve a path forward, while leaving their marks in history. They ascend, and take their rightful place as a MUSE.
Be a part of a grand tale. Create History.
The MUSE Awards competition is designed for the convenience of the entrant by entering online and uploading your entries.
The MUSE Design Awards Association accepts entries from advertising agencies, designers, architects, builders, design firms, engineers, fashion designers, in house marketing team, interior designers, landscape designers, product designers, and freelance professionals. We welcome submissions from all over the world. Work submitted must have been created within the last 5 years.
To ensure high standards of high quality, a category may have multiple winners or no winners. Work is critiqued rated by consensus, with the panel-FAQ of judges determining a rating on a scale of 100 points. Winners with a score between 85 and 100 points are Platinum Winners. Entries with a score between 70 and 84 points are Gold Winners. Entries with a score between 50 and 69 points are Silver Winners.
Entries are judged within 21 days after final submission deadline. Judges are senior- level, experienced in their field/industry, including creative and art directors from international agencies, architects, fashion designers, interior designers, product designers, educators, or business owners. Judges are selected based on experience, credibility and availability.
MUSE Design Awards Categories are divided into 9 award programs – architectural design, interior design, product design, fashion design, transportation design, packaging design, Conceptual design, lighting design and landscape design.

* Fees are non-refundable. Withdrawn entries (whether withdrawn by entrant or by the MUSE Awards for entrant's failure to comply
with the entry rules) will NOT be refunded.
* Multiple entries must be submitted at the same time as your first entry in order to be counted as “additional entries”. An entry submitted at a later time will be counted as a “first entry”.
Rather than increase the fee for each entry, fees are only charged in order to cover administrative costs like printing, mailing and data organization. For this reason, each participant is charged a flat $30 administration fee. When all participants pay the same low fee, those submitting more than one entry will actually pay less than if fees were on a sliding scale.
This prestigious awards competition was created by International Awards Associate, to answer a need for nurturing and promoting the designing “muses” that push the evolution of design to the next level.
MUSE Design Awards seeks to discover and advance existing and developing designers in all the design professions that improve the world we live in, from the buildings we inhabit to the fashion we wear, the rooms we walk through, the vehicles that take us from place to place, the packages we open, and the products we love.
Each year, more than 40 international jurors evaluate your work.
