About YDA

How it works


Established in 2003, The Tech Design Festival is an annual international event which celebrates and promotes creative diversity across all fields of design, from fashion to furniture, and from graphic design to architecture.


The event takes place over ten days in February and is attended by thousands of visitors.


In 2017, 112 leading agencies entered over 420 submissions of work into the competition, with the 12 winners being announced at the Y Design Awards party in March.


Why the Y Design Awards?

The purpose of the competition is to recognize, reward and celebrate the best examples of creativity & originality in design through the use of technology.
