Call For Entries: Submit Your Best Designs to the Design Excellence Awards NOW


The Design Excellence Awards is the leading awards program in the Asia Pacific that celebrates interior design excellence. It is organised by the Interior Design Confederation Singapore (IDCS) the professional body representing Interior Designers in Singapore, supported by the government agencies Design Singapore and Enterprise Singapore.

These awards conferred upon winners bring with them acclamation from their peers and press coverage from the Design Media such as Dexigner, Home & Décor, Business Times, The Luxury Channel, JetGala, Epicure to name a few, and carry both national and international industry importance.

The judging process is based on the scoring of projects anonymously, transparently and confidentially. Jurors are eminent, award-winning and industry-acclaimed Design professionals appointed by the Interior Design Confederation Singapore (IDCS).

In January 2021, the APAC Insider's fifth annual Singapore Business Awards, announced that the Interior Design Confederation Singapore was awarded the “Best Interior Design Practitioner Support Service 2021”, recognising the significant contribution the Interior Design Confederation Singapore has made to the Interior Design Industry at a national and regional level.
