The SBID Awards has launched with exciting news for 2019! 2nd May 2019 | IN DESIGN EVENTS | BY SBID

Entries open for the 2019 SBID International Design Awards with a new-responsive website, new venue and plans to celebrate SBID’s 10 year anniversary. 

Not only have organisers built a brand-new responsive website, they have relocated the Awards to a new venue and have revealed plans to celebrate SBID’s 10th anniversary at the awards in October. The new website has been recreated to not only manage anticipated additional entries, but with improved functionality and enriched responsive content, entrants will be able to seamlessly submit their projects with ease from any device.

Considered as one of the most prestigious accolades in interior design by the design industry, the SBID Awards bring together the world’s finest interior design projects across a range of categories. From hospitality and office design to healthcare and residential, the awards currently represent designers from over 40 countries worldwide, across each continent. Consistent in its quest to recognise, reward and celebrate global interior design, this year’s edition will be bigger and better than ever, with a captivating ceremony to celebrate SBID’s 10th anniversary at the event’s new location; Grosvenor House, Park Lane in London.

Last year saw one of the most globally representative editions to date, with more entries than ever before and an astounding 225,000 unique public votes; industry talent was represented from 46 countries across the globe, with winning projects from the UK, South Africa, China, New Zealand, Canada and UAE.

This year also brings brand new additions to the esteemed panel of judges including Executive Director, Global Experiential Design and Production at MAC Cosmetics; Associate Curator & Associate Director, Curatorial Affairs, Abu Dhabi Project at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation; Construction Director at Nike and Manager for Interior Design at Universal Orlando Resort.

Unlike many industry awards, the SBID International Design Awards are awarded purely on the quality and design of the project. Each entry undergoes a thorough two-tier judging process by panels of leading industry experts for both technical content and aesthetic creativity. Evaluating essential elements such as brief compliance, budget, health & safety and fit-for-purpose design. This is then finalised by a third-tier online public vote, where all finalists’ designs are judged by the public for their favourite  projects.

With the responsive new website, interior designers and architects are invited to submit their projects between now and 5pm on Monday 8th July. SBID accredited designers can exclusively enter up to 5 projects free* as part of their membership (*admin fee applies). The finalists will be announced on 16th August and once announced, the public will be invited to cast their vote for their favourite projects online, which will contribute to the overall scores. Winners will then be announced at the Awards ceremony in October.

Previous editions’ finalists and winners are available to view here.
