Celebrate great design with the inaugural INDE.Awards

Introducing… the INDE.Awards

Members of the design and architecture industry in the Asia Pacific region can look forward to a brand new awards program: the inaugural INDE.Awards. In a global industry that’s already full of awards, the INDE.Awards stands out with its unique stance. This is an industry-run program – by the creative industry, for the creative industry – recognising innovative design across the Asia Pacific in 2017.

Submissions to enter the awards will begin on 7 November, with a curated judging panel looking for the best of the best from the Asia Pacific.

The categories for the awards:

The Building: The night’s top prize – awarded to a project that advances architecture and its capacity to respond to place-specific currents.

The Design Studio: Honouring the studio that thinks forward, creates voraciously and changes perceptions.

The Work Space: This award honours a workspace design that meets the demands of work and the needs of people.

The Living Space: Awarding the region’s most inspiring home, one that responds to one’s place thoughtfully and sensitively.

The Social Space: Honouring a space that tells a relevant story, captures the imagination, and brings people together.

The Object: Not all objects are created equal – this award goes to the region’s finest in modern industrial design.

Launch Pad: The Launch Pad program provides the design community with a vital avenue to nurture and celebrate original, authentic and innovative emerging design, supporting and cultivating the careers of the designers involved.

The Influencer: How does design change our world for the better? The Influencer is a person, product or project that represents how design impacts the region and the world at large.


Great design is accessible, and INDE. knows this. With this in mind, there will also be People’s Choice awards.

The Prodigy: Forget following trends – this award honours a wunderkind who sparks them.

The Luminary: Whether casting a long shadow across many disciplines or excelling ahead of the pack in one, The Luminary recognises the ongoing contribution of one icon to our industry. It’s your choice.

The INDE.Awards is organised by Indesign Media Asia Pacific. For more information – check out the INDE.Awards website.
