This note is to encourage you to enter the interior world’s largest awards program, The Great Indoors Award, organized by Frame magazine.
We’ve got a great jury, chaired by OMA partner Reinier de Graaf. Other jury members are Jurgen Bey (designer and director of Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam), Jan Boelen (curator at Z33 in Hasselt, Belgium), Kozo Fujimoto (head of communications at Hermès Japon), and Ilya Oskolkov-Tsentsiper (president of Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design, Russia).
You can enter interior designs in four categories: Show & Sell (shops, trade-fair stands etc.), Relax & Consume (hotels, bars and restaurants), Concentrate & Collaborate (offices a.o.) and Serve & Facilitate (public spaces).
Category winners walk away with 5,000 euro. They will be announced during the Award Ceremony on 4 November 2011 in Maastricht, The Netherlands.
The work of nominees and winners will be included in the Jan/Feb 2012 issue of Frame magazine, and shown on The Great Indoors Award and Frame websites.
I hope you will feel encouraged to enter the work of your practice. You can submit your work here until 9 September.
Very much looking forward to see your entries, and meet you in Maastricht in November.
