The ASID National Awards represent the Society’s highest level of professional recognition. The awards recognize a body of work created over the course of a career rather than a specific member achievement. However, institutions, companies, and patrons may be recognized for specific exemplary projects or product innovation.
Bestowed on less than 1 percent of membership, election to the ASID College of Fellows is the Society’s highest honor. ASID Fellows have made notable and outstanding contributions to the profession through their work, and demonstrated a long-standing commitment to ASID and the interior design industry.
The ASID Ones to Watch program identifies and recognizes rising leaders in the interior design industry who demonstrate exceptional leadership potential and a willingness to push the boundaries of the profession. They are poised to take the next leap in their careers. Eligibility ranges from emerging professional to advanced designer with the goal of honoring individuals who are ready and eager to advance within the profession.
The ASID Outcome of Design Awards celebrate the proof in the power of design. By highlighting new tools and processes in design, strategy, technology, and research, the awards shed light on innovative designers and businesses that focus on the quantifiable effect of projects on people in spaces. Projects that measure the outcome of design on the human experience through sustainable, humancentric, and socially responsible design solutions are the future, and the Outcome of Design Awards recognize the innovators who are leading the charge.
The ASID National Honors recognize outstanding service and contributions made to ASID at the local/regional level. Highly engaged Individuals, chapters, and industry partners are peer nominated and allow ASID chapters to award those making an impact on fellow members, local communities, and the Society as a whole.
The ASID National Student Portfolio Competition generates the best collection of design projects from interior design students across the nation. Top student portfolios are invited to attend an exclusive student portfolio track at SCALE: The ASID National Student Summit for a chance at an internship with a top firm.
The ASID Student Chapter Awards are presented to outstanding student members, chapters, and faculty advisors who are responsible for promoting the ASID student member experience as an enriching learning tool for future interior designers.
