Landscape Design

Landscape Design of The Year

Landscape design is an art form that combines both nature and culture, where creativity stems from the atmospheric feel of the location, the culture that lies within the vicinity of the destination and the ingenuity of the designers themselves.

We are searching for the best landscape designers in the world whose work embodies the best of the best. From landscaped urban parks, horticultural works and the artistic composition of the design.

MUSE believes that landscape design is a gateway for many aspiring creative individuals to create a much more sustainable, beautiful environment for all. Submit your designs today.

* You may submit an entry into multiple categories at the same time. The first Category will be charged as per the original submission fee. Additional categories (2 or more) will be charged as such.

Rather than increasing 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.

Work submitted must have been created within the last 5 years.
