2021 Award of Merit for Innovation in Design Thinking winning project, ‘Wahid,’ by Basharatullah Rahmat

Applications are now open for 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.

The potential of design to positively change and add value to our lives is the focus of this recognition. As designers, we are trained to use design thinking processes to better understand the people for whom we are designing.

Entries may be concepts or innovative processes at any scale or in any sector. Submissions must clearly communicate the intended value to the people, business, or society at large.

The deadline to submit entries to the competition is April 29, 2022 at 12 p.m. ET.

IDC Student member(s) will be honoured at an awards celebration this fall. In addition, all winning projects will be profiled on IDC’s website, newsletter, and promoted on IDC’s social media channels.
