How to Enter

Welcome to the 2020 Design of the Times contest!

PLEASE READ: Important changes to the payment process … Payments for entries will be processed online and can only be made via credit card.  Your entry will not be accepted/final until payment has been processed. Have your credit card ready to pay before each deadline (Standard deadline is 2/14/2020, late deadline is 2/21/2020). Late fees are applied to all entries paid for AFTER Friday, February 14, 2020. If you are submitting multiple entries, confirm your credit card can accept the charges (i.e. for example, 10 entries @ at $499 each equals total charge of $4,990).

Be prepared to answer all questions before you start the submission process. Download the Sample Entry and Entry Worksheet for reference. Complete the entry template before you begin the process. The entry template will assist you with previewing the questions and preparing your entry.

  • Your entry will not be saved until you complete all steps of the entry process, upload at least one image, and hit "Save as Draft" at the bottom of the page.
  • Clicking "NEXT" and "PREVIOUS" buttons will not save your entry.
