The Society of British and International Interior Design (SBID) has announced the launch of the SBID International Design Awards for 2020 including new entry categories.

With design talent hailing from over 45 countries, a record number of entries received year on year and 225,000 public votes, the SBID awards celebrate the industry’s finest interior designs on an international stage; attracting entries from the UK, South Africa, China, New Zealand, Canada and UAE.

There are 17 categories across both commercial and residential sectors. This year, the awards introduce new residential categories distinguished by price point and property type, with a brand new category for Residential Budget Up To £50K – ensuring every level of the profession has a chance to shine

Each entry is subject to a judging process by panels of industry experts considering both technical content and aesthetic creativity. The finalists will be announced in August, where the public are then given the opportunity to vote for their favourite projects contributing 30% to the final scores.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London on Friday 23 October (providing it is safe enough to do so).
Entries will close at 5pm on Friday, 12 June 2020. Each SBID Accredited designer can enter one project into the SBID International Design Awards 2020 free of charge.
