The New European Bauhaus prizes will celebrate the excellence of beautiful, sustainable and inclusive examples to inspire this new initiative of the European Union that President Ursula von der Leyen first announced during her 2020 State of the Union address.

Do you have an amazing project or idea that is beautiful, sustainable and inclusive? Send your application now!

The ten prize categories – from 'products and lifestyle', to 'reinvented places where to meet and share' – are all themed around the integration of the core pillars of the initiative. There will also be a specific 'New European Bauhaus Rising Stars' strand for each of the ten categories. It is open to under-30s and aims to support and encourage the younger generation to continue developing new ideas and exciting concepts integrating the three core values of the New European Bauhaus.

The application period is open until 31 May 2021.

Winners will receive cash prizes and a communication package to help them spread the message about their project.

Both EU and non-EU nationals can apply, as long as their ideas and projects are developed or physically located in the EU.

An evaluation committee will first assess the eligibility of all entries. There will then be an online public vote, open to all New European Bauhaus newsletter subscribers.

A jury made up of New European Bauhaus official partners will then assess the three projects with the most votes under each category and strand before the prizes are awarded by the evaluation Committee of the Commission.
