February 27th, 2017
The Shaw Contract Design Awards program is open to all professional interior design and architecture firms, as well as end users who have featured a Shaw Contract product in their projects. Entries are to be judged on their detailed design stories, encompassing sustainability & environmental goals, innovative design solutions, as well as the Shaw Contract flooring’s contribution to design objectives. Here are eight reasons why you should start preparing your entry for this global award program!
Global Award winners will be promoted in Shaw Contract marketing materials, media outreach, and an advertising campaign in leading A&D publications globally. This is a fantastic chance to showcase your project!
Two representatives from each Global Award winning firm will be invited as guests of Shaw Contract to experience an International design journey. Previous experiences include a trip to Chicago to explore NeoCon, and 2016’s trip to Miami, Florida to visit the South Beach Wine & Food Festival.
Stay tuned for the announcement of the 2017 Design Journey destination!
A $2,000 USD charitable donation could be awarded in your firm’s name to an organisation or charity of your choosing. 2016 Global Award winner Haskell donated to Habitat for Humanity’s Water Sanitation and Hygiene project, which will help more families in the APAC region to gain access to water as well as lifesaving training and education
The Shaw Contract Design Awards are judged by an independent panel of industry experts from across the globe. The 2016 judging panel included representatives from Gensler, NBBJ, HLW, IBI Group, and Princeton University.
The 2016 awards features over 450 total entries from 32 Countries, representing the highest caliber of work within industry segments across the globe. The awards are a great chance to showcase your work amongst industry peers from around the world.
Both Market Award winners (the shortlist) and Global Award winners (the finalists) will receive a unique MoMA sculpture to commend the achievement.
For the past 3 years, an international panel of judges has chosen an Australian project as a finalist for a Global Award. Your entry will help showcase Australian design, and potentially make it 4 years in a row of fantastic Australian award-winning design.
