The entry deadline for the 2013 Australian Interior Design Awards is Friday 1st March.The 2013 presentation of the Australian Interior Design Awards marks a decade of design excellence. The 10 year anniversary will be celebrated in style at the Melbourne's historic Plaza Ballroom, located beneath the Regent Theatre, and will feature a retrospective of past award recipients.
This national awards program is co-presented by the DIA in partnership with Diversified Exhibitions (organiser of DESIGNEX) and Architecture Media (publisher of ARTICHOKE). The DIA manages the judging process to ensure the outcomes reflect the highest standards of professional achievement. DIA members receive a 33% discount on entry fees and winners of state-based DIA Awards (for interior design/decoration) are automatically short listed for the national awards, on re-submission of their project. Awards are offered for all areas of interior design practice including workplace, retail, public, hospitality, installation and residential design, residential decoration, sustainability advancement, excellence and innovation, best of state, best International and emerging interior design practice. The program is self-funding and monies raised are used solely for its delivery.
All submissions are made online at www.australianinteriordesignawards.com. The process is very straight forward, however you should avoid leaving your submission until the last minute, as it can take time to prepare and upload an entry.
