Submissions are welcome from interior designers, architects, landscape architects, decorators, crafts persons and design students.

All winners will be published in the Awards issue of Canadian Interiors in November, 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 (date to be confirmed), courtesy of Maison+Objet (and will be notified far in advance of the Awards issue being released).


Projects must have been completed between June, 2019 and August, 2021. 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.
