The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) has opened nominations for the Society’s annual National Awards, one of its most distinguished honors. The National Awards recognize design professionals who have continually created an extensive, impactful body of work over the course of their careers.

“The ASID National Awards provide us with an opportunity to honor members for their significant, collective work and experience,” states Randy Fiser, Hon. FASID, ASID CEO. “Recipients truly represent the best of our design community - their ability to create human-centric work that improves the human experience embodies the ASID belief that Design Impact Lives.”

The Awards are divided into four distinct accolades: Designer of Distinction, Design for Humanity, Design Innovation, and the Nancy Vincent McClelland Merit award.

The Designer of Distinction award recognizes an ASID professional member who exemplifies a commitment to the profession as demonstrated by a significant, high-quality body of work representing excellence in interior design. The Design for Humanity award celebrates an individual or institution for having significantly contributed to improving the environment for humanity through design-related activities or projects that transform lives. The Design Innovation award recognizes an individual, organization, manufacturer, or research project for having produced a significant and innovative product, project, or body of work that contributes to interior design by positively impacting human behavior; promoting comfort, efficiency, or communication; exemplifying a commitment to the profession; exhibiting a commitment to sustainability, health, and wellness; and displaying an overall appreciation for design. Nancy Vincent McClelland Merit award honors individuals, organizations, manufacturers, or research projects for outstanding support of the interior design profession through education, research, promotion of the value or impact of interior design, or another significant contribution.
