Head to London for the 'Oscars of the design world'
The nominees for the 2013 Designs of the Year awards will be showcased at London's magnificent Design Museum later this month.
Known as the "Oscars of the design world", this prize-giving is a celebration of the most creative and talented people on the planet.
The winners will be decided by a jury and the results will be announced on April 17th, by which time visitors to the capital will have had ample opportunity to run the rule over each contender.
Leaders at the Design Museum have confirmed the works that have been shortlisted for an accolade will go on display on March 20th and will remain in place until July 7th.
This is certainly one of the most diverse exhibitions to be held in London this year and there is sure to be something there to suit all tastes.
The Designs of the Year are split into numerous sections, including architecture, furniture, digital, products, graphics, fashion and transport.
So, one minute you could be looking at exhibits that relate to The Shard - the tallest building in western Europe - and the next you might be faced with a selection of Louis Vuitton garments.
It is this diversity that makes the collection so compelling and it is certainly worth spending a day at the museum if you happen to be in London in the next few months.
The complex is within easy reach of most central London hotels, so visitors really have no excuse not to check out this fascinating exhibition.
It can be found just to the south of the River Thames and is a short 15-minute walk from London Bridge station.
You can access the exhibition for just £10.75 and the museum will be open right the way through the Easter holidays, as well as on the two Bank Holidays in May.
