Past Design Excellence Award Winners
Each year, we host our Chapter’s Excellence in Design Awards. Current Designers, Students, and Industry Partners are able to submit their work for review. Each entry is judged by out-of-state ASID professionals on the basis of scale and proportion, color and composition, design creativity, function, solutions appropriate to the design criteria, and materials. A fee per entry is required. Award entry deadlines are usually taken in late March.
