The Australian Interior Design Awards recognise and celebrate interior design excellence via a credible, industry-based program, which is backed by the Design Institute of Australia, the professional body representing Australian designers. Founded in 2004, the program is a partnership event of the Design Institute of Australia and Artichoke. It is self-funding and not for profit.

Any Australian based design professional may enter. Projects may be located anywhere in the world.


The awards conferred have both national and international significance. The judging process is anonymous, transparent and confidential. It is based on peer review and conforms to international standards. Jurors are eminent designers working with a convenor appointed by the Design Institute of Australia

Entrants and their projects receive considerable media recognition via a range of newspapers, magazines and websites. All shortlisted, commended and awarded projects are permanent additions to the online Awards gallery.
