The International Interior Design Association has a great student design competition opportunity. The Student Design Competition celebrates original design and rewards individuals and/or teams whose projects demonstrate innovative, functional design solutions that have a positive environmental and human impact, while allowing emerging professionals the opportunity to showcase their work and fresh design ideas to professionals working in the field.

First, second, and third place winners will be selected by a jury of interior design and business professionals who will judge entries based on innovation and creativity, coherence and functionality, human impact, fulfillment of program requirements, and presentation of the information.

Prizes from OFS Brands:
1st Place – $2,500
2nd Place – $1,500
3rd Place – $750

*Prizes to be split amongst team members for team submissions that win.

Winners will be announced in the Spring 2018 issue of QUAD, the IIDA student newsletter, and featured in DesignMatters and on the IIDA website.
