Spread across ten categories, participants will have a chance to win a number of prizes including a parcel of land offered by the Decentraland Foundation, a share of $50,000 of Renovi tokens, as well as software subscriptions to key design tools and programmes donated by Threedium.

Winners will be chosen by judges and sponsors made up of leading figures in the architecture, design and crypto industries.

These include Stavros Zachariades from Squire and Partners, a leading globally recognised architectural firm; Oliver Lowrie from Ackroyd Lowrie, a UK-based architectural practice operating in the commercial and residential spaces; Hilary Lancaster from Fusion Interiors Group, a leading global hospitality design agency, Mike Charalambous from Threedium, a bleeding-edge 3D engine that creates immersive product experiences; and Professor Michail Georgiou from the University of Nicosia.
