Following the conclusion of the 2021 T3 Awards, we have undertaken a review of all our active and future planned awards programmes and concluded that a free entry format is the right option for the T3 brand because it removes a not insignificant barrier to entry, enabling our judging panels to evaluate the widest possible selection of products.

The free-to-enter T3 Awards is now approaching 100 categories and has growing momentum, so we will be focusing our efforts on continuing to grow and develop this part of the T3 brand going forward. As such we have decided to incorporate this year's planned T3 Design Icon Awards into the 2022 T3 Awards and remove the entry fee. 

 Further details of next year's awards scheme will be announced on and T3's digital channels in early 2022.
