P*DA 2018 Deadline for Nominations Extended

Good news! Due to overwhelming requests, the President*s Design Award (P*DA) 2018 is extending the deadline for nominations to Wed, 6 September, 11pm!

P*DA is Singapore’s highest accolade for design, and is awarded to extraordinary designers and designs who have improved people’s lives through design.

This year, there are two ways to participate in P*DA:

1. Nominations

Your nominations help us to recognise the creativity, innovativeness, and design achievements of Singapore. If you know of designers or design projects who are doing great work and deserve to be celebrated, please nominate them through our online portal by Wednesday, 6 September, 11pm.

2. Submissions

Designers who wish to directly submit their projects or portfolio may continue to do so by Friday, 15 September, 11pm. You do not have to go through the nomination stage; however, you should include a third party testimonial in your submission.
