The 2013 Restaurant & Bar Design Awards are now open for entries, inviting submissions from the world’s leading architects, interior and lighting designers and hospitality operators.

An independent annual awards program, the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards is the only international concept of its kind, dedicated exclusively to celebrating the best food and beverage spaces from around the globe, in all types of environments including hotels, transport, business, culture, leisure and retail.

Now in its fifth year, the awards have become a prominent event in both the design and hospitality industry calendars. Upon the launch of the 2013 awards program, Marco Rebora, founder of the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards, said“It is with great pleasure that we launch the fifth Restaurant & Bar Design Awards to recognise innovation and design excellence in the world’s most interesting restaurants and bars. In 2012 we received double the entry numbers of the previous year, from more than 60 countries, showing that competition is becoming ever stronger. With another fantastic judging panel, we look forward to what is set to be our most exciting awards programme yet.”

The 2013 awards are open to design projects completed between Jan. 1  and Dec. 31, 2012. A project entry must be a collaborative submission from both the design studio and hospitality operator.

Entries across 21 categories will be judged by a panel of highly influential design, food, lifestyle and hospitality personalities, including: The Times (UK) Restaurant Critic, Giles Coren; Chef Restaurateur, Tom Aitkens; JIA Boutique Hotels owner, Yenn Wong; and Moooi Founder and CEO, Casper Vissers.

Also judging the awards, Tamara Lohan, founder of Mr & Mrs Smith, says,“The Restaurant & Bar Design Awards plays an important role in commending the best of the best spaces to eat and drink, demonstrating that design excellence is vital in creating alluring environments which strike the perfect balance between style, substance and quality. I am delighted to be a judge for the 2013 awards and having seen so many hotly anticipated new openings around the world in the last year, I very much look forward to a challenging judging process.”

All awards entries must be submitted online by Apr. 14, 2013, with shortlisted projects to be announced on June 24, 2013. For full entry guidelines and further information please visitwww.restaurantandbardesignawards.com.

Award winners will be announced at a ceremony and party in central London in late September 2013.
