Best of Canada Awards Competition

Welcome to the 2020 Canadian Interiors Best of Canada Awards competition.

UPDATE: The COVID-19 pandemic has been causing many unforeseeable difficulties for the Canadian A+D industry, for example inabilities due to lockdown and quarantine restrictions to access new project sites and photograph them.

Therefore, based on your strong feedback regarding that and many other logistical hurdles being faced by the Canadian design community, we at Canadian Interiors have decided to significantly extend the submission window in order to give you more time to submit your Projects and Products to the Canadian Interiors Best of Canada Awards competition.

Submissions are now due by Thursday, September 10.

Stay healthy, stay safe, and we look forward to seeing your best work entered in the competition!

Prizes

All winners will be published in the Awards issue of Canadian Interiors in November 2020, with the Project of the Year winner featured on the cover of the Awards issue.

The Judges’ Pick winner of the Products category will receive a trip package (incl. flight + hotel) to Paris, France to attend Maison+Objet as a VIP in January, 2021, courtesy of Maison+Objet (and will be notified far in advance of the Awards issue being released).
