In 2014 IDEA introduced the Inception Award to acknowledge excellence in the advancement of interior design / interior architecture education. The competition is limited to Interior Design / Interior Architecture / Spatial Design students of the 11 member institutions of IDEA. This year IDEA solely invites students currently in their 4th year of education in interior architecture, interior design or spatial design.
The work is judged on the following three criteria:
- Best interior proposition.
- best visual representation. Keywords: evocative, composition, craftsmanship
- best comprehensive work of text with drawings
With the reward of a first Gold prize of A$650 and a second Silver prize of A$350 for their distinctive contribution to the discipline.
