It’s that time of year again! Yes, that means we’re recovering from the holidays and remembering how to work again after plenty of downtime in December. But it also means that awards season is here. The Golden Globes are behind us and we are staring down the barrel at the Grammy Awards (Beyoncé forever), the Razzies (I’ll always predict anything Nicolas Cage-related to take the trophy there), the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Oscars—the list goes on.
But let us not forget the most important of all these accolades—the 11th annual HD Awards.
Submissions are now open for projects that opened or will open between December 2013 and March 10th, 2015, and the deadline for entry is March 10th. The 20 project categories range from lifestyle or boutique hotel to sustainable project and upscale restaurant. For project entry form and rules, click here.
And just to make everything a bit more exciting, this year we will also be honoring the best products the industry has to offer. This has long been a suggestion—what project is complete without great products, after all?—and this year we’re going for it. If you have a product that debuted between December 2013 and March 10th, 2015, you’re eligible to enter in 10 categories, including casegoods and furniture, lighting, and seating. Rules and an entry form are available here.
Winning and finalist projects and products will be honored at a ceremony in New York City on June 3rd and published in our June issue.
I’ll refrain from making any predictions about our award winners this year, but I will say I’m anxious to start going through the entries. Good luck!
