What images would you choose to bring the words of Kate's 2020 RSA lecture - on what it takes for cities to get into the Doughnut - to life?

Well this year's RSA Student Design Awards have asked just that, and set it as one of the two design briefs for their 2021-22 competition.

Who for: The RSA Student Design Awards are for emerging designers worldwide, and challenges students and recent graduates to tackle pressing social, environmental and economic issues through design thinking.

The brief: Conceive and produce an animation to accompany this minute-long audio file from Kate's 2020 RSA lecture, that will clarify, energise and illuminate the content.

Key dates:
  • Sep 2021: Briefs launch, registration opens - register here
  • 24 Jan 2022: Submissions open
  • 9 Feb, 4pm GMT: Early bird submissions deadline (£25 entry fee)
  • 9 Mar, 4pm GMT: Final submissions deadline (£35 entry fee)
  • Mar - May: Judging (2 stages: shortlisting and interviews with finalists)
  • 29 Jun: Awards ceremony

Inspiration: to help generate some ideas for your animation, why not take a look at:
  • the full video of Kate's RSA lecture below
  • these animations that were made to accompany each chapter of the book Doughnut Economics: seven ways to think like a 21st century economist
  • last year's winners, who created these animations on an audio on the subject of 'Fashioning A Circular Future'
