The goal of the BDA Prize and the Charlottesville: Identity & Design ideas competition is to foster community dialogue about design.

Entries are to serve as a catalyst for dialogue and discovery in our community, and will be exhibited publicly and discussed in open forums attended or led by members of the Charlottesville community, artists, designers, scholars, and our invited panel of jurors.

The BDA Prize hopes that acts of reflective making will open up the potential for a new understanding and a new expression of Charlottesville’s spirit of place and the power of public art in the 21st century.
