Las Vegas Design Center (LVDC) and the California Central/Nevada Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) are accepting applications for the seventh annual ANDYZ design awards through April 30 with specially-priced “early bird” submissions available through March 31. Winners of the ANDYZ awards, which highlight and celebrate noteworthy projects by interior designers, architects and design students in 10 interior design categories, will be recognized during the Summer 2021 Las Vegas Market, running Aug. 22 - Aug. 26, 2021.
“Las Vegas Design Center and Las Vegas Market are delighted to partner with ASID again to offer the ANDYZ awards for the seventh straight year,” said Cain Brodie, general manager of LVDC. “Interior designers are vital to our business and the ANDYZ awards give us a platform to celebrate and showcase their creativity and talent. We hope to be able to recognize winners in-person at a live at-market event in August.”
The 2021 ANDYZ awards will be presented in 10 categories: Best Custom Furnishings/Product Design (not including a manufacturer’s product); Best Residential Kitchen Design; Best Residential Bathroom Design; Best Residential Outdoor Space Design; Best Individual Residential Space Design (such as a bedroom, media room, living room, laundry room or garage, not including a kitchen bathroom or outdoor space); Best Multiple Residential Space Design (spaces within the same residence); Best Commercial Space Design; Best Hospitality Space Design; Best Showroom Design; and Best Student Design (for students currently enrolled in 2020/2021).
The ANDYZ Awards were created in 2015 to recognize exceptional design from designers and design firms. In 2021, interior design projects in residential, commercial and hospitality categories will be judged anonymously on five main criteria – presentation, innovation/creative use of space, scale and functionality, aesthetics and overall execution – by a panel of professional and award-winning ASID designers located outside the contest area as well as an editor from 2021 media sponsor, Furniture, Lighting and Decor.
Through March 31, “early bird” submission fees are $100 per entry, and early bird student fees are $25 per entry. From April 1 through April 30, entry fees are $125 per entry, and student entries are $35. There is no limit to the number of entries that may be submitted.
