Design Week also includes the Premier’s Awards of Excellence in Design which recognizes the design being done in Saskatchewan. Entries for this competition are displayed to the public and awards are handed out at an evening gala at the end of Design Week.
Categories for the Premier’s Awards of Excellence in Design include architecture, engineering and geoscience, graphic design, interior design, landscape architecture, planning, and integrated design. A jury made up of one representative from each member association, which may include invited guests from the Design Week Speakers Series, will evaluate entries on criteria appropriate to each category.
The Design Council of Saskatchewan is a volunteer organization formed in 1983 and a collective voice of six provincial associations that represent design professionals working in architecture, planning, engineering and geoscience, graphic design, interior design and landscape architecture. The organization was established to celebrate and promote awareness and understanding of professional design in Saskatchewan.
