With just a couple of days to go until entries close for the 2015 InstallAwards – at midnight on Friday 13 March – here are answers to a few FAQs about how the awards work.
Who can enter?
Anyone connected with a permanent or semi-permanent installation that was handed over to the client between 1 March 2014 and 28 February 2015. You can be an integrator, consultant, manufacturer, distributor, interior designer, facilities manager, client… we don’t mind.
What are the categories?
There are six categories: audience venues; commercial and industrial; education; hospitality; residential; retail, transport and public space. There’s more detail about the categories if you need it.
Where do the projects have to be located?
The projects can be anywhere in the world.
But don’t project awards only reward the integrator?
Not the InstallAwards. As well as a Best Project Award in each category, there is also a Star Product Award, which highlights the contribution made by a single project to the overall installation. Additionally, there is a Team of the Year Award, which goes to the best example of teamwork from all the submitted projects.
How much does it cost to enter?
How do I enter, and what do I need to submit?
Go to www.installawards.com/nominations and answer the questions. We’ve kept the form as straightforward as we can while ensuring the entries have enough detail for the judges to deliberate on. You can also submit up to four photos in support of your entry.
When do entries close?
At midnight on Friday 13 March.
When and where is the awards ceremony?
The InstallAwards will be held at the Bloomsbury Ballroom in central London on the evening of Thursday 4 June.
