Every year, the INDE.Awards acts as a barometer for our progress as an industry and a region. Over the last six years it’s become a powerful platform for elevating, celebrating and recognising excellence in architecture and design across the globe.

Last year the INDEs attracted entries from over 14 countries spread across the expansive Indo-Pacific region. And as such, it’s become the world’s only awards program to encompass the entire region and uniquely capture its progressive and intuitive design vernacular.

Entries are currently open for the INDE.Awards and we think it’s time to get your amazing work the recognition it deserves! Here are five reasons why you should click the Enter Now button, right now.

#1 Show what you can do, on the global stage

The INDE.Awards is set apart by its commitment to the Indo-Pacific. As a global programme with local roots, our shortlisters and winners are a testament to the diversity of their geographic, cultural and architectural contexts.

Through the awards, we explore that which brings us together and sets us apart, celebrating the similarities and differences which make our region truly great. 

It is this commitment that positions INDE.Awards as the perfect platform for those throughout the region, allowing all entrants to represent their countries on the global stage.

Join judges, ambassadors and a family of alumni who hail from right across the Indo-Pacific, where the shared pursuit of excellence creates a platform for celebrations.

#2 Gain valuable global recognition for your work

INDE.Awards offers the chance to tap into a truly regional network of print, digital and content driven media. Through these platforms, we have built an audience for INDE that is global in its reach, taking the best of local design and elevating it across the world. 

These networks are extended thanks to our wonderful partners, who tap into their own channels to share the INDE programme further and wider than ever before. 

This is brought into a new dimension thanks to our annual Gala event, which is attended by industry leaders from around the world, including our international panel of Jurors. Check out the social pics from last year’s INDE.Awards event.
