This year 100% design celebrates the theme of ‘Elements of design’ - considering everything from the fundamentals of design to the component parts that make up a product, the materials used to tell the stories and processes of development.
100% design and Picfair, in partnership with Icon, are holding a photography competition to find compelling images that capture elements of the Workplace, Home and Architecture. With an exceptional judging panel, and a variety of prizes to be awarded, this competition will be a fantastic opportunity to see photographs that highlight the elements of design that we might not normally notice, understand or appreciate.

Image Categories

  • Elements of Home

    It’s at home that we can really express ourselves, bringing a personal touch to the spaces we live in. Share your images of the elements of a home you admire, or the spaces or details that bring you a sense of joy. What catches your eye, and how do the different elements work together?
  • Elements of Workplace

    What role does design play in the workplace? Help us celebrate the subtle things that make all the difference in how we work within an environment. Is there a workplace that inspires or excites you? What are the elements that makes it feel right, and how has this been achieved?
  • Elements of Architecture

    Buildings are the sum of their parts, in fact you might say that it’s impossible to capture the whole of a building in one image. But what makes each building distinct? Upload your images that capture the essence of a building. Help us find those hidden moments of design that you think deserves more attention.
