ABOUT THE DESIGN AWARDS

The most prominent and celebrated event of the year, the Design Awards honors the incredible spaces completed by firms across New England. This unique event is truly the ‘Oscars’ of our industry, shining a spotlight on the multi-faceted teams that make every project a success. With diverse categories ranging from Workplace, Residential & Hospitality to Healthcare, Higher Ed & Research Lab, all entries are professionally juried by celebrity designers and industry professionals from across the country. A Student Awards component highlights the rising stars in our area and are tallied by local firm leaders. Expect an extravagant affair with a multimedia experience featuring exclusive video content, project photography and guest presenters – all culminating in a title worth bragging about for years to come – Best In Show.


HOW IT WORKS

SUBMISSION: Design firms with offices in New England are invited to submit their projects from the past year for consideration in the IIDA NE Design Awards. Stay tuned for information on how to submit entries for our 15th Annual Design Awards in 2022!

JUDGING: Judging takes place by Interior Design Industry Professionals who reside outside of New England. Firm name, client information and other project details are omitted to keep the process anonymous. Scores are tallied within a variety of subcategories with the total based upon 50% Project Narrative and Floor Plans and 50% Project Photography.

AWARDS: Winning entries are announced at the event with one winner chosen per category.
