RSA Student Design Awards – the world’s longest-running student design competition – is celebrating its 100th birthday!

To mark the SDA centenary year, we are honoured and delighted to announce a very special event awarding the 2023 Bicentenary Medal to Satish Kumar and Schumacher College for their outstanding contributions to education that is enabling people, places and the planet to flourish in harmony. We welcome them into the tapestry of RSA design winners past and future.

We’ll also be inviting trailblazers from the RSA’s global SDA alumni community to share their reflections on the impact that winning an SDA had on their future career in innovation, as we launch our most inclusive, most imaginative awards year yet.

The main stage event will be followed by an exhibition: '100 years designing for and from the future', sharing, for the very first time, rich stories and artefacts from the SDA archive.

Join us as we embark on an exciting new chapter in RSA award-giving history: the future, when woven collectively, can only be brighter.
