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.

Deadlines & Fees

Architects, builders, contractors, developers, engineers, business owners are encouraged to submit work that is in prototype or complete*. Winners are determined by one entry, and not an entire body of work, so careful selection should be observed.
Entry Period Early Bird
(Apr 23 - May 14, 2020)
(May 15 - Jun 17, 2020)
(Jun 18 - Sep 23, 2020)
PROFESSIONAL 1st ENTRY $169 $179 $199
ADDITIONAL ENTRY $169 $179 $199

* 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 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.

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