The 43rd Annual Interiors Awards

ICFF is celebrating another year of exceptional work in the field of interior design across all disciplines at the 43rd Annual Interiors Awards. The Interiors Awards and distinguished Designer of the Year recognition have both launched and supported the careers of some of the world's most incredible designers.

Relaunched last year, the 2023 competition is an opportunity for designers around the world to have their work recognized in 12 categories: Wellness/Sustainable, Bar/Restaurant, Education, Healthcare, Hotel, Office, Adaptive Reuse/Historic Renovation, Retail, Civic/Public, Residential, Other, and Student. 

Selected by an esteemed jury of design leaders, winners—along with the coveted Designer of the Year honor—will be revealed and celebrated at an awards dinner in New York City during ICFF.

43rd Annual Interiors Awards Jury

The jury will be comprised of leading industry professionals who will review each entry and select one winner in each category. The jury reserves the right to make no award in a given category, to honor a project in a different category than the one entered, or to create a new category. The decision of the jury is final. The jury will not know firm names during the judging process. All projects are considered equally.

Projects are judged on:

  • Interior design excellence by project type, as determined by the categories.
  • Excellence of the submitted images and project description.
  • Objective criteria including originality, quality, aesthetics, functionality, and user experience.
  • Adherence to the competition rules, deadlines, and requirements.
