About the Eurasian Prize Festival and affiliated events.


Since 2002, the Eurasian Prize Festival has been providing recognition to the most prominent works of individuals and businesses who do more than just provide services or sell goods. The festival continues promoting those who aim to make our cities, homes and user experiences better. In addition, the Eurasian Prize connects architecture and design professionals and firms, providing great networking opportunities and building ties that are meant to last.


The Eurasian Prize is built around an international awards and events program. The festival culminates in the Eurasian Prize Gala, the main event honoring the best individuals and businesses involved in architecture, urbanism, interior design, and industrial design. The ceremony is traditionally held at the Residence of the Governor of Sverdlovsk Oblast. Situated in the heart of Yekaterinburg, a big city on the borderline between Europe and Asia, the 19th century palace opens its doors to the Eurasian Prize awardees and honorary guests of the ceremony.


The Eurasian Prize Festival is an annual set of professional events. This includes workshops, lectures, conferences, installations, meet-the-artist sessions and parties. The events are held throughout the year to maintain the interest in the award and competition. The Festival connects architects, designers, media, manufacturers, and other businesses active in the field of design, planning and construction. The networking opportunity provided by the events is truly unique.
