Applications for the Value of Design Awards (VODA) are still open, but entry fees have been suspended this year, due to the changing nature of COVID-19 and its effect on businesses and interior designers across the country.

To honour and celebrate our community’s design projects, IDC will continue to collect VODA entries, host remote deliberation meetings with VODA judges, and select winners.

IDC continues to monitor the current global situation with plans to announce award winners this fall.

The Interior Designers of Canada’s third annual Value of Design Awards (VODA) celebrates the best in Canadian interior design, highlighting innovative, purpose-driven spaces that are beneficial to the client.

The judges for VODA 2020 represent a diverse cross-section of the design industry, from interior designers and architects, to sales representatives and media.
