The awards, which forms the core of the festival, will be judged by more than 20 international designers and editors, including Nigel Coates (now Associate Director of the Festival), Matteo Thun, Jaya Ibrahim, Pernilla Ohrstedt, Joey Ho and Voon Wong.
Projects can be entered in 13 different categories, ranging from civic spaces and transportation hubs to bars, clubs and shops.
Designers of the shortlisted entries will then be invited to present their design live to judges and delegates at the now famous live crit sessions, with category winners getting to battle it out on the final day of judging for the title of ‘World Interior of the Year’.

INSIDE runs concurrently with the World Architecture Festival
(WAF). Last year, more than 500 entries were submitted, with 2,100 attendees at the Festivals.
Says Programme Director Paul Finch: “The awards programme is a marvelous opportunity to showcase how designers are responding to challenges, some similar, some specific to their area or region, in ways that address creatively the needs of clients and users. Entries provide a snapshot of current concerns and trends, and we look forward to seeing more great designs from the widest range of professional practices.”
Alongside INSIDE’s live crits, the Festival will showcase an exhibition of all entries and will include a series of talks, which this year, is driven by the theme “Mind and Body”.
