I’M ENTERING A PRODUCT. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR THE INDO-PACIFIC RULE?

You need to be an Indo-Pacific based designer/architect, and you need to have designed your product in an Indo-Pacific country. Please refer to the list above for included countries.

CAN I SUBMIT A PROJECT/PRODUCT THAT IS STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION?

No. All projects/products must be 100% finished works at the time of entry submission. Display suites created for developers’ property sales do not qualify for entry.

FOR ‘THE OBJECT’ CATEGORY, MUST MY PRODUCT BE AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET?

Yes. It can be anywhere on the spectrum from ‘mass produced’ to ‘produced on demand’, but it must be available for purchase.

HOW DO YOU DETERMINE THE COMPLETION DATE OF A ‘CONCEPT’ (FOR ‘THE INFLUENCER’ CATEGORY)?

It’s the date you first publicised the project. If you haven’t publicised the project, it’s the date you stopped working on it (i.e. the design was complete).

WHAT IS BEST OF THE DECADE?

Best of the Decade awards are two new era-defining accolades that honour the lasting impact of a single, influential piece of architecture or design in the Indo-Pacific. Open to entrants across the region, Best of the Decade | The Living Space and Best of the Decade | The Work Space recognise the exceptional execution of and lasting impact made by a single, influential piece of architecture or design. Best of the Decade is Jury-decided and will also be open to People’s Choice Awards.

Your project must have been completed between 1 January 2010 and 21 February 2020. To be eligible for this category your project and your studio must be located in the Indo-Pacific region.

HOW CAN I BE NOMINATED FOR THE LUMINARY AND PRODIGY AWARDS?

The Luminary and Prodigy Awards are not open for self-nomination. Our panel of INDE. Experts and Indesign Media Editors nominate the recipients of The Luminary and The Prodigy accolades. In the past, trophy winners in these categories have been decided by People’s Choice voting. In 2020, the INDE.Awards Jury will select The Luminary of the Year and The Prodigy of the Year, who will each receive a trophy. All nominated Luminaries and Prodigies, however, receive The Luminary title and The Prodigy title respectively. Trophy winners only receive the ‘of the Year’ accolade. See our Category Criteria page for more information.
