Extended entry eligibility

We know that 2020 was tough, so this year, we’ve extended the entry period for eligible projects.

Projects completed between January 2020 and June 2021 are eligible for entry into IDEA 2021 as long as they haven’t been entered in previous years.

Newly introduced categories

This year, IDEA will be introducing a new category that recognises the contributions designers and architects make to their local communities and community groups. More about that soon.

This category will support our commitment to valorising projects that make positive social and environmental contributions, as exemplified by our Sustainability Award.

Our Sustainability Award is a special award, for which all practices and studios can nominate themselves without extra charge.

Get your work seen by our panel of industry experts

Judges announced so far for IDEA 2021 are Domino Risch, Ryan Genesin and Brahman Perera. We’ll be announcing more judges soon!

See your project published on Australian Design Review and inside

As well as being published on the IDEA website, all shortlisted and winning entries will be published on Australian Design Review and in inside magazine. They’ll be shared across our social media and newsletters.

There’s also the opportunity for individual projects and studios to be featured in dedicated profiles and project profiles on Australian Design Review and inside magazine.

Winners will also receive a certificate and a trophy.
