The 2017 edition of the Interior Design Confederation Singapore’s (IDCS) Design Excellence Awards (DEA), one of the region’s most anticipated interior design competitions, is now open for entries.
The DEA sets to recognize the best of interior design in the commercial, residential and public categories in Singapore and Asia Pacific, endorsing and celebrating the achievements of practitioners and students alike.
The 5th cycle of the Awards is marked by the introduction of twelve (12) new categories across the two competition tracks: Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) for interior designers and firms; as well as Spatial Design Awards (SPADE) for students. Notable new categories include Exhibition Design, Sustainable Design, Environmental Design for both tracks; and IDEA Project of the Year, Emerging ID Firm of the Year, Top 3 ID Firm of the Year and AkzoNobel Colour Award, which are exclusive to IDEA.
With a wider selection of categories, the DEA 2017 aims to be a more inclusive platform to honor the interior design industry with the highest accolades.
The Award is considered a seal of excellence and proof of outstanding achievements in the design field, acknowledged by a professional jury panel.
