RSA Fellows are invited to join the judging panel for the 2020 Awards. Find out more here and register your interest before Thursday 30 January.
The RSA Student Design Awards (SDA) is a global competition focused around a set of briefs that challenge participants to tackle the big social and environmental issues of our time through design thinking. Winning an RSA SDA is a career transforming event for students. The judging panel plays a crucial role in who is chosen and why. At the RSA we strive to create a fair and inclusive process that convenes diverse perspectives and values both the lived and learned experience of our judges.
The judging process takes place in two stages:
- Shortlisting: late March-early April 2020
- Interviews: late April-early May 2020
A commitment to attend these two days in person at RSA House (London, WC2N 6EZ) is required, we are able to offer to cover reasonable UK & IE travel expenses for Fellows invited to take part.
If you would like to be a part of this year’s judging process, please register your interest by completing this form by 9.00am GMT on Thursday 30 January 2020. For monitoring purposes only, please complete this optional questionnaire.
The judging panel will include a selection of people with relevant lived and learned experience on the brief's subject matter, alongside representatives from the sponsors of the brief and the RSA. You can find more information here.
The SDA team will be in touch with all who express an interest to let them know the outcome of their application by Monday 24 February 2020.
Each year we run a competition for students worldwide to create design solutions to pressing social, economic and environmental challenges. Here are six ways you can get involved.
