We recognize that successful interior design requires a collaboration between many disciplines, consultant teams, project managers, vendors, contractors, manufacturer reps, etc; therefore the awards will acknowledge all who contribute to project success.

We will be back at the Denver Art Museum this year, giving out project awards for multiple categories. We listened to your feedback, and are happy to give you several NEW categories to submit for:

DEI Award: This award goes to a project that shows exemplary leadership and commitment to advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion through interior design. Any project that was previously submitted can apply for this award
