Entries are being accepted now through June 22 for the ASID Illinois 2012 Interior Design Excellence Award Competition. The competition is open to all ASID and IIDA Illinois Chapter Members and registered interior designers in the state of Illinois. This year, for the first time ever, entrants can submit projects digitally via the ASID Illinois online Call for Entries page. This new submission process was instituted by ASID in an effort to conserve materials and streamline entries.
The 2012 Call for Entries ushers in some other notable changes to the competition. Designers and/or firms can submit a maximum of six entries in the following overarching categories: contract, residential, product design and sustainable design. Additional awards have also been added, including honorariums provided by Gala co-sponsor Cosentino, honorariums provided by Sub-Zero/Wolf and recognition for Best of Design. Also, through submission entrants agree to attend the Celebration of Design Gala at The Art Institute of Chicago on September 14.
