SBID International Design Awards 2015 now open
The SBID International Design Awards 2015 are now open for submissions. Since its inception in 2011, the SBID Awards has served to recognise, reward and celebrate all design excellence, from super luxury projects to innovative design and new talent on limited budgets.
Following the success of previous editions, this year's SBID Awards are designed to surpass the rest. The 2014 edition saw a 15% increase in entries than previous years from over 30 countries around the globe including the UK, Canada, Turkey, China, Russia, USA, Australia, UAE and more.
This year's edition will include the new categories Office Design and Healthcare Design which will be added to the existing popular categories ranging from best Hotel Design, Retail Design and Intelligent Design to best KBB Project, Public Space and Visualisation (3D renderings) to make a total of 14 categories.
Architects, interior designers and manufacturers are invited to submit their projects and products into the SBID Awards 2015. The deadline for submitting entries is Thursday 30 July 2015.
The SBID International Design Awards has come to be regarded as one of the highest accolades in the interior design industry. Each category undergoes an exclusive two-tier judging process by panels of leading industry experts for both technical content and aesthetic creativity and evaluates elements such as brief compliance, budget, health & safety, and fit-for-purpose design.
Entrants also get the opportunity to promote their submission once the finalists have been announced as the public will be invited to vote for their favourite projects online.
The esteemed panel of judges this year will include new additions Lewis Carnie, head of programmes at BBC Radio 2 & 6; Sir Michael Dixon, director at the National History Museum, London and Robert Hudson, chief executive of the National Association of Shopfitters as well as a revered selection of international industry leaders: Kevin Mau, senior creative director at The Boeing Company; Ben McOwen Wilson, director of content partnerships at YouTube; Jane Preston, facilities manager UK, Real Estate & Workplace Services at Google; David Lewis, managing director of Sunseeker London; Mathew Dalby, creative director at The Studio at Harrods; Carolina Calzada, managing director at Global Color Research; Patrick Taylor, managing director of Taylist Media; Theresa Dowling, editor and group editorial director for Progressive Market Intelligence (FX, Blueprint).
Sponsors include ABB Group, Natuzzi Italia, Maison & Objet, Wools of New Zealand, and Sans Souci Glass Deco just to name a few.
Finalists will be announced in September 2015 while sponsors and VIPS will be invited to the SBID annual afternoon tea at the House of Lords in November 2015.
Entry is free of charge for SBID members and a fee applies for non-members.
