A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR



Alison Carter,
Editor, World Interiors News


The details are not the details. They make the design.” Design visionary, Charles Eames, who produced countless classic pieces of furniture and home accessories, recognised that it is an interior’s details that provide the atmosphere, become the emblems of possibilities and provide beacons of social positivity.  

I look forward to seeing the varied, vibrant and very visual snapshots of outstanding global interiors.  Thank you in advance for taking part in this year’s WIN Awards.  It is so important to take time through these awards to witness and reflect on the outstanding visions and hard work that are underway on a global scale, despite the various challenges we face. 

I look forward to seeing the entries!"

THIS PODCAST WILL TACKLE THE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS THAT NEED TO BE ASKED AROUND DESIGN IN TODAY'S CHALLENGING WORLD.

Categories

What ones will you enter?

Interiors

Education & Learning

We are looking at learning in its broadest sense. The category covers formal educational institutions such as schools, colleges and universities. But it also includes research centres, libraries and training facilities. It combines both public and private sector facilities.

Submissions should include details of the interiors, highlighting any particular design features, materials and lighting.

Experiential Design

This category will reward the best use of lighting, audio visual and visual effects for installations, cultural venues, theatre productions, exhibitions and retail, trade show stands, display spaces, pavilions etc.

Submissions should give details of the project and its context, highlighting and explaining in simple terms the technologies used and the impact they had.

Lighting Projects

This category is looking for projects that have utilised light in a purposeful and meaningful way to transform the space. From decorative lighting to integrated lighting systems, the judges will be looking for excellent design, innovation and evidence of energy-efficiency.

Cultural Venues

We are looking for the best experiences for visitors to concert halls, museums, galleries and the like and the permanent and temporary exhibitions they offer. Submissions should include an outline of the interiors, highlighting any particular design features, materials, lighting and special effects.


Health & Wellbeing

In a Covid-19 aware world, we are seeing continued growth in the healthcare and wellbeing sectors. As hygiene remains more critical than ever before, designers must look beyond pure aesthetics and instead focus on how to effectively create clinically safe spaces that are welcoming as well as being better places in which to work.

Submissions should include details of the interiors, highlighting any particular design features, materials and lighting.

Hospital and Clinics

Residential Care Homes

Healthcare Design: Response to Covid-19

This category is open to those projects which have demonstrated excellence in how they have responded and adapted design for the Covid-19 crisis. Judges will be looking for initiatives that have created covid-secure healthcare spaces where patient well-being, social distance caring and frontline worker safety are paramount. Pop-ups and temporary structures will be eligible as well as more permanent design features.

Hospitality

We have brought together categories from previous years under the hospitality umbrella. There may be crossovers within hospitality projects, but submissions may be made into three subcategories. New projects as well as projects that esponded directly to covid will be considered.
