Las Vegas Design Center Seeks Entries for ANDYZ Awards
The Las Vegas Design Center (LVDC), located within the World Market Center campus, is calling for entries for the third annual ANDYZ design awards program, created in partnership with the California Central/Nevada Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). Submissions are being accepted through June 3.
The ANDYZ awards – which recognize and celebrate noteworthy projects by interior designers, architects, and design students in 10 categories – will be presented during the Summer 2017 Las Vegas Market, slated for July 30 through August 3. The 2017 ANDYZ awards will feature several new elements, including the addition of a 10th award category recognizing superlative showroom design, plus “early bird” submission discounts.
The ANDYZ Awards, named to bear the resemblance of “Annual Nevada Design,” were created in 2015 to recognize exceptional design from designers and design firms. Interior design projects in residential, commercial, and hospitality categories will be judged by a panel of professional ASID designers, based upon five main criteria: presentation; innovation/creative use of space; scale and functionality; aesthetics, and overall execution.
“Las Vegas Design Center and Las Vegas Market are the ‘go-to’ resource for the Western interior design community, and we are pleased to once again work with ASID to support exciting design projects for residential, commercial and hospitality interiors with the ANDYZ awards,” says Lee Hershberg, VP/Home Décor & Las Vegas Design Center. “Interior designers attended the recently concluded Winter Market in record numbers, further strengthening the position of Las Vegas Design Center and Las Vegas Market as the leading furniture, home decor and gift destination in the western United States.”
ANDYZ winners will be announced during Summer 2017 Las Vegas Market at an awards celebration on Sunday, July 30, in the WorldView Ballroom on the 16th Floor of Building B. The awards are open to all design firms, independent designers, and students located across the country. Categories include: Student Project, for students enrolled in 2017; Custom Furnishing/Product Design, not including a manufacturer’s product; Residential Kitchen Project; Individual Residential Space (such as a bedroom, bathroom, media room, living room, laundry room, outdoor space, or garage, not including a kitchen); Multiple Residential Spaces within the same residence; Individual Commercial Space; Multiple Commercial Spaces within the same commercial property; Individual Hospitality Space; and Multiple Hospitality Spaces within the same hospitality property. A new, 10th award category – Showroom Design – will debut in 2017, recognizing superlative Las Vegas Market showroom design.
