ADAC is thrilled to invite all designers and architects to enter for a chance to win one of the prestigious 2024 Southeast Designers & Architect of the Year Awards!

The Southeast Designers & Architect of the Year Awards annually recognizes firms and individuals of all design styles from across the Southeast who exemplify the highest level of talent in the categories of Residential Interior Design, Contract Interior Design, and Architecture. An esteemed panel of three judges, including a notable architect, an acclaimed interior designer, and a top editor from VERANDA magazine, will select finalists and winners based on blind evaluations – which means anyone has the chance to win!

Here’s some advice for submitting top-notch work that’ll wow the judges:

  1. Dare to be different! Select projects that exhibit your unique perspective on design to catch eyes and stand out.
  2. Focus on quality. Include only the finest images of your work, keeping in mind the order in which they appear.
  3. Keep it simple. Write descriptions that outline the scope of work sufficiently, but succinctly.

Winners will be announced at the Southeast Designers & Architect of the Year Awards Gala, which is co-sponsored by VERAND. The ceremony will coincide with ADAC’s annual spring market, DESIGN ADAC, April 23 – 25, 2024. In addition to being recognized by VERANDA and Business of Home, a press release highlighting the finalists and winners will be sent to top-tier national, regional, and local media. Finalists and winners will also be promoted on ADAC social media channels and recognized in celebratory announcements from select media partners.
