Airbnb Launches Design Competition for Wildest Accommodation Ideas

Offering $10 million USD to turn them into actual stays.

Airbnb is calling all architects and designers to come up with ideas for the weirdest accommodations.

For a month, the platform is accepting submissions from creatives all around the world for unusual listings, offering $10 million USD to turn 100 of the winning ideas into actual stays. The competition, dubbed the OMG! Fund, follows the company’s 2020 iteration, which initially offered $1 million USD.

Judging criteria include originality and feasibility, as well as sustainability and experience, with all submissions to be reviewed by a panel of designers including Iris Apfel, Australian architect Koichi Takada, Airbnb vice president Bruce Vaughn and Airbnb superhost Kristie Wolfe.

Those interested can apply via the official website until July 22 at 11:59 p.m. ET. You can learn more about the competition here.
