Rhode Island Monthly’s Design Awards honor professional architects and interior designers in our state. In addition to longtime favorites, we’re debuting new categories that reflect how life has changed in the last two years. Winners will be featured this fall in Rhode Island Monthly.

About This Year’s Awards

The annual Design Awards program will consider projects in these categories:

How to enter: send publication-worthy photography of your finest, most recently completed projects. Include a variety of angles for each room to be considered, plus an exterior view along with “before” shots if possible. Digital submissions (minimum file size 5 X 7 inches at 300 dpi) may be submitted and should jpg or tiff files (lightly retouched is okay). However, all entries must include color prints for judging purposes. Entrants are responsible for securing rights to use submitted photography for publication in a fall 2022 issue of Rhode Island Monthly. Previous Rhode Island Monthly Design Awards winning entries are not eligible.

With each submission, include the category you want it to be considered in, and a written description of the project’s goals and processes.  Please include your name, the name of your business, a phone number, as well as contact information for any additional participant to be credited in the project.
