About The Competition

The Search for Texas’ Next Top Designer competition began in the Fall, 2006 with a call for entries throughout Texas and resulted in applications from more than 100 talented designers. A group of 20 finalists was selected for the final evaluation and Abi Ferrin was selected as the recipient of the first award. Since that first award, the organization has been proud to review the work of some of Texas' most talented designers.

Texas’ Next Top Designer, Inc. accepts applications once per year. Click here to review our guidelines, sample application and sample business plan template.
