IDC’s Value of Design Awards (VODA) shine a spotlight on Canadian interior designers by providing a forum to showcase the benefits of design thinking: an empathetic, inventive, and iterative process focused on the human experience within interior spaces.

These awards demonstrate the positive human and business impact of design thinking for the people and companies who hire a professional interior designer. By measuring the benefits and outcomes of design, IDC is showcasing the true value of design across the country and beyond.


The deadline to submit VODA entries has been extended to May 1, 2020.

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.
