Following the immense success of the inaugural design awards in 2015, identity – the region’s leading monthly magazine dedicated to contemporary design, interiors and architecture – is proud to announce plans for the eighth annual identity Design Awards, to be held in November 2023.
The creation of the first identity Design Awards in 2015 was in response to readers, advertisers and designers calling for identity (the region’s first design magazine) to play a pioneering role in organising a programme that will set the standard for design awards, just as we have for magazine publishing in the region.
Launched by Motivate Media Group in 2002, identity is dedicated to excellence in all forms – and regarded as the regional authority on global design, with a reputation for professional, unbiased and independent editorial content of the highest calibre. These are the attributes that are also applied to the identity Design Awards.
The criteria for the design awards will remain true to identity’s proud DNA and will seek to reward design excellence, originality, sustainability and aesthetics. The entries – to be submitted online – will be independently evaluated by an international jury, with each member renowned for delivering excellence in the design arena.
The judges will seek to identify the best examples of contemporary designs across interiors architecture and furniture design.
