Awards will be given per category to both the winning designer as well as the winning restaurant / bar operator.
A project can be entered into any relevant category. If you collaborated on a piece of work with another company or individual, you will need to make sure they haven’t entered it as well. A full list of this year’s categories is available.
Make sure all entry materials (text and images) are clear, concise and of the best possible quality. Poor quality visual media will weaken your application.
The entries that best meet the judges’ personal definitions of ‘design excellence’, will win.
It is essential that all work is entered in full and on time. Any work that isn’t, may be rejected from the competition.
All entries must be made online. The call for entries opens on the 8th January 2019 and closes on the 14th April 2019.
The shortlist will be announced on the 18th June 2019. All category winners, including the judges’ choice of Best Overall Designed Restaurant and Best Overall Designed Bar will be announced at our London awards event in early October 2019.
