2014 IDIBC SHINE Awards of Excellence now open for submissions

Calling all Registered interior designers!

New for 2014:
  • Simplified entry process - submit one binder, one CD
  • New judging process
  • No sustainable category
  • RIDs name will appear on awards certificates and three certificates will be issued 

The SHINE Awards are a highly prestigious, annual program that allows IDIBC to celebrate the exceptional work of its members. The Awards showcase excellence, innovation and originality in interior design.

This year, we've moved to a simpler, more streamlined entry process. To enter the 2014 Awards, all you need to submit is one binder and one CD. The binder will contain all your project information, floor plans, photographs and other supporting documents, and is what the judges will use to evaluate your entry. 

We've also eliminated the sustainable category as sustainability has become such an integral part of interior design that it no longer makes sense to isolate sustainability from the rest of the design process. 

Another big change for this year is with the certificates. We're now including the Registered Interior Designer's name on the certificate and handing out three per award: one for the Registered Interior Designer, one for the firm, and one for your client.
