Record-Breaking Number Of Entries To INDE.Awards 2020!


March 13th, 2020

A record-breaking 473 entries were received from all around the Indo-Pacific region for the INDE.Awards 2020 – what a way to ring in our special ‘Best of the Decade’ year and the twentieth anniversary of Indesign Media!

The final figures represent a ten-per-cent increase on entry numbers from 2019, and entries from countries in Asia are up by seven per cent. This year we received entries from 14 locations around the region: Australia, China (excluding Hong Kong), Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.




“The record number of entries to the INDE.Awards this year is a testament to the growing cohesion of architects and designers all around our region, and their interest in a regional discussion. It’s no secret that 2020 has gotten off to a rocky start. So we’re all the more thrilled that the INDEs have continued to grow. 

“We look forward to honouring the region’s most progressive work at this year’s Gala, and to bringing together the region’s many voices at our first ever INDE.Summit on 14 August.”

– Raj Nandan, Founder & CEO, Indesign Media Asia Pacific




Now it’s all in the hands of our esteemed Jury.
