Please note that applications for the 24 hour Design Challenge are closed now from 1st November. 


Creative Futures Academy, in collaboration with the Media Cube at IADT, invites you to take part in a 24-Hour Design Challenge.

Racing against the clock, you will complete a series of Design Thinking games and tasks, concluding with a presentation of your final ideas. Oh, and the best part? The winning team will receive a grand prize of €1,000.

We will focus on the challenges facing contemporary society and work in teams to find solutions for a better future. All solutions must take into account the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and conform to one or more of them.  Application deadline November 1st 2022.

We would like to thank our sponsors including DRIC, Dublin Regional Innovation Consortium and the Local Enterprise Office, DLR.
