Your Design Work: Showcased Globally!

Recognition is up to you! Competition for up-and-coming architects and students 35 or younger.

The Competition

INSPIRELI AWARDS is an international competition in architecture, urban design, interior design and applied art for students of architecture and young architects under the age of 35. INSPIRELI AWARDS is enabling new talents to tell their stories and raise awareness about their own world view before they get their chance to build it. It brings together up-and-coming design and architecture students or recent graduates, as well as established professionals, and provides them a forum to connect to the general public.

Contestants enter works in one of two categories:

Vision for conceptual works and Realisation for already built projects.

Contestants submit not only visualizations of their work, but will now provide full technical details and specifications enabling complete feedback from the INSPIRELI Jury.

Joining Two Stories in Architecture


Contestants enter works in four categories:


Urban planning

Interior design

Design a real project

Proposal of the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Addis Abeba / Ethiopia

Submitted projects will compete in two awards at the same time. In the category architecture as a student design and in the competition for the proposal of the embassy in Addis Abeba.

Selection process

Voting process takes place for each category by the "Category Featured juror panel".

The Featured jurors vote for the best projects all over the year and their nomination will be published officially on the INSPIRLELI AWARDS web site.

The total number of 30 nominees will be selected for the final round. The Featured jurors will assess the final projects and their votes will select winners of the category.

Single project whose work receives the highest number of votes will be awarded with the Grand Prize Jury Award. Should the number be the same for more projects the final selection follows by the Chairman of the INSPIRELI AWARDS jury.

The award for the design of a real project of the Czech Embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, is selected by an independent panel based on its selection. Embassy proposals are also included in the category of architecture, where they will compete in the INSPIRELI AWARDS international student competition.
