Interior Design

Welcome to an exhibition of exceptional interior spaces that define elegance, efficiency, and environmental sensitivity at the NY Architectural Design Awards.

The NY Interior Design Awards celebrates the art of crafting spaces that reflect beauty, functionality, and innovation. This category highlights the significance of interior environments in enhancing the quality of life and experiences within buildings. It focuses on projects that skillfully blend aesthetics, practicality, and sustainability in residential, commercial, and public spaces.

We honor the ingenuity and expertise of interior designers who transform ordinary spaces into extraordinary habitats. Their work not only elevates the visual appeal of interiors but also addresses the complex needs of functionality, comfort, and environmental consciousness.

Deadlines & Fees

The NY Architectural Design Awards invites contributions from designers at all stages of their projects – whether in-progress, finalized, or purely conceptual. Winners are chosen based on the quality and materials of a single entry, not a collective portfolio, emphasizing the significance of each individual submission.

In the process of giving back to the contributions of proud designers, the award’s cost-effective entry fees offer all entrants with exceptional value for recognition at much lower fees. A $30 annual administrative fee is utilized for the first entry of each competition year, which covers expenses including printing, mailing, and data management. This ensures that the fees are kept consistent, bringing about greater value especially for those submitting multiple entries.
