It is Canada’s only design competition focusing on interior design projects and products without regard to size, budget or location. Submissions are welcome from interior designers, architects, landscape architects, decorators, crafts persons and design students. See the full competition details below.

All winners will be published in the Awards issue of Canadian Interiors in November.

In addition to being featured on the cover of the Awards issue, the Project of the Year winner will also receive an expense paid (flight & hotel) trip to Italy in October to visit the Venice Architecture Biennale and tour the contract furnishings region of Pordenone, thanks to the generous sponsorship from our friends at Black Bread & Jam.


Projects must have been completed between June, 2021 and August, 2023. The project must be either located in Canada, or an international project where a member of the design team is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

Products must be physically prototyped; or if in production must have been launched in the market in the same timeframe as stated above.

Any false representation therein will invalidate the submission and a refund will not be given.
