1. Represent Asian design, globally

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. Boost your profile in a big way

Winning an INDE.Award is a lasting legacy for any firm.

Don’t miss your opportunity to get noticed like never before, as all the eyes in the region turn to you.

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 corporate and strategic partners, who tap into their own channels to share the INDE programme further and wider than ever before.
