Recognizing design excellence.
Held in conjunction with Design Week, the Premier's Awards of Excellence in Design recognize the great applied design work being done right here in Saskatchewan.
The award categories are as follows: architecture, engineering and geoscience, graphic design, interior design, landscape architecture, planning, and integrated design (an integrated entry demonstrates significant involvement of two or more member associations throughout the project and cannot be entered in any other category).
A jury composed of one representative from each member association (and may include invited guests from the Design Week Speakers Series) evaluate entries on criteria appropriate to each category.
The competition is open to certified individuals and corporate members who are in good standing with a DCS member association.
Entries must be designed by a Saskatchewan Resident and have been completed within the two-year period prior to Design Week. Projects undertaken outside of Saskatchewan by eligible Saskatchewan designer(s) may also be considered.
All entries in the competition are displayed to the public during Design Week. At the conclusion of Design Week, an awards ceremony is held, where the winning professional designers are presented with their awards.
