September 2011

Janine Stone is pleased to announce the launch of the wp-content/2012 Young Interior Designer Award.

The competition has quickly established its credentials and is well regarded by the country’s leading universities. They recognise that it presents an exciting opportunity for students to compete against each other for the grand prize of £10,000 cash and a six-month, fully paid internship with one of the world’s leading interior and architectural design practices.

Lynne Mesher, Course Leader, Interior Design – School of Architecture, University of Portsmouth and tutor to last year’s winner (2011), Tony Tan comments:

“The Young Interior Designer Award created by Janine Stone presents an amazing opportunity for talented Interior Design undergraduate students to launch a successful career in Interior Design. The competition is a chance to demonstrate the breadth of skill and creativity of our students and a chance for them to stand out in this competitive industry”.

More than 50 UK universities have been invited to enter their students in a bid to get their work seen by a national audience of media and potential employers. Students will have four months to respond to the creative brief before the closing date for the competition on the 31st January 2011, culminating in a gala judging event at a chic London venue in April 2012.

The competition has been established to help young interior designers to connect with the industry by providing a national platform to showcase their work. It is hoped that it will also help to further drive respect for the industry by showing the commitment and excellence of the graduates that take part in the competition.

The Brief for the competition:

For the purpose of this award we are asking students to design a 450 sq metre lateral apartment in a major city of the world. The apartment can have balconies and terraces up to a maximum of 100 sq metres. The height of the ceilings can be up to maximum of 4 metres. There are no restrictions on the number of rooms or spaces within the apartment, provided it meets your client’s brief and design aspirations. The design of the apartment needs to reflect the culture of the city of your choice and the requirements of your client.

Your client can be a single person, a couple, or a family unit, with or without personal staff. The client can be a well known personality or someone fictitious.
