Awarding makers, designers and craftspeople who will shape the future of the sector.


The Design & Crafts Council of Ireland's Future Makers Awards & Supports programme is one of the largest prize-funded award programmes in Europe. It offers a range of awards and supports to students and emerging makers.

Future Makers is an initiative which recognises talent, innovation and creativity and supports the next generation of makers, designs and craftspeople to take the step from training into enterprise. This is a crucial time in the career path of young makers and Future Makers creates a platform to showcase talent, as well as providing much needed financial support.
