About the Awards
The Surface Design Awards are unique as they solely focus on the progressive design of innovative surfaces for international projects.
There are 8 categories available for entry, with most offering an interior and exterior category split. There is also a Supreme Award presented to the overall winner.

The Awards are judged independently by a panel of leading architects and designers, all whom are experts in interior and exterior design. The judges discuss the projects face-to-face at the judging day in October; a winner and shortlist are chosen for each category.

Awards Presentation - Thursday 11 February 2021
The 2021 Awards Presentation, held at the Business Design Centre in London, draws in over 200 architects and designers, all interested in seeing the world’s leading surface designs and networking with their design industry colleagues.
Finalists for each category must attend the Awards Presentation.
