IDI Awards 2017 | Open for Applications

Posted 16.06.17

The Institute of Designers in Ireland is the largest and oldest association of design professionals and longest established creative forum in Ireland. The IDI is committed to advancing the value and impact of design - inspiring, supporting and learning from one another along the way. We aim to make design matter.

The IDI Irish Design Awards exists to recognise, celebrate and promote exemplary design vision in Ireland. The Awards recognise outstanding achievement across the design spectrum in Ireland, uncover emerging talent and focus a spotlight on the importance of Irish design in the national and global context.

The IDI has assembled an illustrious panel of jurors for 2017 to review the exemplary output we expect to flood in from all corners of this Design Island. We ask you to submit your best recent work to help us present and promote a diverse and inclusive range of design categories and disciplines.
