About

Design Commission

A unique feature of The SAY Award is its Design Commission. From flip books and ceramic bells to Jesmonite discs and handmade quilts, each year a designer is commissioned to create bespoke prizes for each of the 10 Shortlisted artists; offering a creative and exciting complement to the award’s musical counterpart.

The theme of The SAY Award 2021 design commission is sustainability. Supporting the mission of our Charity Partner Music Declares Emergency, we will help encourage the music industry to take positive and necessary action to reduce carbon emissions and protect our planet.
