Upstate New York
New York State of Design


New York State of Design is more than just a design competition…

Our aim is to illuminate the junctions between business and design, asking all entrants “why is this an example of excellent design?” Each entrant into the competition is required to submit a brief description underscoring the relationship between their design and their client’s goals.

With 240+ members across the state, from Lake Placid to Fredonia, Horseheads to Oswego, we need something that will bring us all together. We also wanted to document the state of design throughout New York State, including members and individuals

Call for Entries

The call for entries extends to the entire state, open to members and non-members, individuals, and businesses. The only requirement – you must reside in the state of New York.
