Australia’s best interior design projects will be rewarded at the 2018 Australian Interior Design Awards presentation in Sydney on 25 May, 2018. 

Now in its 15th year, the awards are a collaboration between the Design Institute of Australia and Architecture Media’s Artichoke magazine that is supported by the Australian Institute of Architects. The 2017 program received a record-breaking 525 entries across the program’s eight categories.

The awards are split into two parts, evaluated by two juries. The jury that will decide the winners of the seven Awards for Australian Interior Design, convened by Geraldine Maher (principal, Geraldine Maher Design), comprises Dave Bickmore (director, Studio Gram), Elizabeth Carpenter (managing principal, FJMT Studio), Sonia Simpfendorfer (creative director, Nexus Designs), Hanna Richardson (principal, Zwei), Mark Simpson (director, Designoffice), Donna Wheatley (head of workplace and education strategy, WMK), Tracey Wiles (partner, Make) and Kieran Wong (director, Cox Architecture).

John Gertsakis (director of communications, Equilibrium Consultants), will act as the panel’s sustainability advisor.

The Award for Interior Design Impact recognizes interior design projects that have led to positive business, social, environmental and/or cultural outcomes.

The jury for this award consists of Robert Backhouse (chairman, Hassell), Roger Poole (director, Roger Poole Architects) and Sue Wittenoom (founder, The Soft Build).
