We've overhauled the contest this year and have 11 exciting new categories! Because the contest categories are not limited to room type, you have more freedom to show off your best work.
All entries will be viewed and selected by a panel of ASID judges, and finalists' homes will be toured by a member of the 417 Home editorial team in early March, 2018. Winners are featured in the summer 2018 issue of 417 Home and honored at the Design Awards Reception in July. Read about Biz 417's Commercial Design Awards here.
The entry period for the 2018 contest ended January 31, 2018.
