Design can change the world. As a member of the architecture and design community, you are the visionary—the creative problem solver who is constantly redefining the way we work, play, and organize our lives. The Design Is…Award recognizes amazing work, and celebrates the design story behind each and every project. The reason is simple: if we are going to improve life for the better, we need to honor the people who rethink the very notion of what design is…
The Shaw Contract Design Is... Award program is open to all professional interior design firms, architecture firms, and end users. Projects must feature a Shaw Contract, Shaw Hospitality or Shaw Hard Surface product as the predominant flooring in the space, and must have been completed between February 2015 and February 2017. All entries must submit high-resolution digital photography of the project. February 24, 2017 is your last opportunity for project submissions. There is no cost to enter.
Market winners represent the highest caliber of work within an industry segment across the globe. These winning projects will be automatically entered into the Global Awards Program and People’s Choice Voting.
Global winners will be promoted in Shaw Contract marketing materials, media outreach, as well as an advertising campaign in leading Architect & Design publications. Each winning firm will receive a Design Is…Award to commend the achievement. In appreciation of standout talent, we want to create an experience for the Design Is…Award program’s global winners. Two representatives from each winning firm will be invited (as guests of Shaw Contract) to experience a design journey. And, to continue their legacy by furthering design education around the globe, a 2,000 USD charitable donation will be awarded in the firm’s name to an organization of its choice.
Winners are selected by a panel of judges with geographic and market segment diversity, as well as by the general public for the People’s Choice Award.
