Two weeks until IDEA 2022 early bird entries close


There are just two weeks left to save $90 on entry fees on IDEA 2022. Enter your project now to save.

It’s IDEA’s 20th birthday! For two decades, IDEA has been the benchmark for Australian design excellence and the ultimate accolade for architects and designers across the country.

Entries are open until 10 June, but early entries end on 1 May.  Enter your project now so you don’t miss out on the $90 discount.

Create an account (or log into an existing account) and start working on your entry at https://idea.awardsplatform.com – you can save your entry and return to it at a later date as many times as you like!


Any project completed between 1 January 2021 and 30 July 2022 is eligible for this year’s awards so long as it hasn’t been entered in IDEA previously.

Why enter IDEA?

IDEA is organised by Australian Design Review and inside, is Australia’s oldest architecture and interior design competition, and is judged by a panel consisting of the country’s leading figures (more on this year’s panel soon).

An easy entry process

IDEA has a simple streamlined entry process.

We’ll ask you to submit a short project description of maximum 50 words, a long project description of maximum 200 words and a final 200 words on how the project responded to the client brief.

After that, you’ll have to upload 10 gallery images, along with a spec sheet, plans and drawings… and that’s it!

Get your work published on Australian Design Review and in inside magazine

Every shortlisted and winning entry will be mentioned or published on the IDEA website with the possibility of being featured in Australian Design Review.

They will be shared with our social media and newsletter audiences, and featured in dedicated issues of inside magazine.

Winners will also receive a trophy designed by Axolotl.
