IIDA Student Design Competition (SDC) 2014

The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) is currently hosting its 2014 Student Design Competition (SDC) and inviting all interior design students to participate and compete for more than $4,700 in prizes.

The IIDA Student Design Competition celebrates original design and rewards individuals and/or teams whose projects demonstrate innovative, functional design solutions that have a positive environmental and human impact.

This year, students will evolve the concept of the open office to offer employees a workplace that encourages health, well-being, collaboration, and productivity. 1st prize – $2,500, 2nd place – $1,500, 3rd place – $750.

This competition is open to students around the world who are currently enrolled at an interior design program or institution. Participants can enter individually or as a team (maximum 5 people).

A panel of three judges will evaluate the entries on:

  1. Innovation and creativity – 20%
  2. Coherence and functionality – 20%
  3. Human and environmental impact – 20%
  4. Fulfillment of the program requirements and additional contributions above and beyond the basic program – 20%
  5. Presentation – 20%

Winners will be announced in the February 2015 issue of Quad and featured in DesignMatters and on the IIDA website.
