After operating the Design and Build program for nearly 30 years in the Denver metro area, MOA has expanded its Design and Build program to include a national competition as part of the program. 2022 marks the fourth annual, national art, architecture & design competition. The goal of the competition is to cultivate potential from emerging artists, architecture, landscape architecture and design students and to allow these creatives the space to conceptualize inventive ideas within a set of boundaries.
The competition garners an online repository of art, architecture & design concepts. The competition is based on an annual theme and/or challenge provided by MOA and cash prizes are awarded to the top three submissions. It is the goal to expand the national competition to allow for international entries in the future. The competition will focus on the USA national level through at least 2024 before taking the competition to an international audience.
The competition is open to any undergraduate/graduate student currently enrolled in any US university (Recent graduates are eligible to enter for up to one year from graduation date). Students should be studying in the field of art, architecture, design, engineering and/or other programs that focus on creativity. Entries can be submitted by individuals, teams or as classes.
The 2022 Competition has now Closed. Stay tuned for our 2023 competition, which we expect to announce in late 2022.
