Why submit your work to the Frame Awards?

This annual event puts a spotlight on the world’s most inspiring retail, hospitality, work, institutional, residential and show spaces. Whether the projects you’re most proud of are sprawling or small, 36 comprehensive award categories developed by our team lay the opportunity for your work to be seen, recognized and celebrated by industry leaders.


We award studios based on vision, execution and creative talent. Where many industry awards only acknowledge big names, we recognise small studios, up-and-coming designers and breakout names, too, making us one of the fairest interior design awards around.


Not only have we handpicked our juries of leading designers, institutional ambassadors and global brand directors to judge your work, you will have the opportunity to present your projects to them and receive feedback from the target audiences you design for.


Be seen by Frame's inner circle, world class interior architects and VIP guests including real-estate stakeholders, brand strategy directors and private investors. Did we mention the extensive Frame Awards media coverage? All of the Frame Awards winners receive a stage moment, the iconic Frame Awards trophy, photography and feature in a special issue of Frame that will be part of your design legacy.


Want to meet new contacts, clients and fellow designers from around the world? Being part of the interior design competition of the year means you get to meet your design peers and other industry stakeholders, while enjoying a highly memorable evening of celebration together.


The Frame Awards is a two-day festival not only celebrating exceptional design and the talent behind it, but the day programme, which features the live judging, explores the future of spaces. Be inspired by our lineup of talks, upskill with our engaging workshops, participate in panel discussions and explore our immersive exhibitions. By submitting, you become part of something much bigger than just another industry award.
