Prizes will be awarded for the most imaginative, innovative and potentially realisable ideas in any of these categories. The overall winner of the Celia Thomas Prize will receive £20,000. 

Robin Sheppard, chairman of Bespoke Hotels said: "Once again, we have been thrilled by both the quality of entries so far and diversity of their origin. The competition continues to provide inspiration and spark the creativity of budding designers and architects across the world. On behalf of the panel, I am looking ahead with keen interest to reviewing and selecting from the latest round of ideas."
