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 IDC PROpel Emerging Leaders Program is a national competition created exclusively for emerging leaders, providing the opportunity for engagement in discussions and connections with influential representatives in the interior design community.

2020 IDC Legacy Award for Distinguished Service Winner: Cary Pepper, Sales Manager, Lutron Electronics

The IDC Legacy Award for Distinguished Service is the most prestigious individual award presented annually by IDC to one individual. The recipient of this award exemplifies outstanding service and dedication to IDC and more broadly to the interior design community in Canada. The award honours the individuals, companies, or institutions that are recognized as pioneers in the design community nationally.


This year, IDC created a new opportunity exclusively for Canadian interior design students called the Innovation in Design Thinking: IDC Student Competition. The purpose of this competition is to provide students with a national platform to demonstrate the value of interior design and illustrate the positive impact design has on the users of the spaces, supported by evidence-based research.
