It’s official! The IDEA 2021 gala party is this Thursday, 24 February 2022. And it’s shaping up to be a sensational night full of dancing, celebration and good vibes.
If you haven’t got your tickets yet, come party with us at Sydney’s Royal Randwick racecourse.
We all could use an excuse to dress up and commemorate the past 12 months of seriously impressive design innovation under less than ideal conditions.
In IDEA’s 19th year, we are proud to have managed to bring the industry together, in person, for each of those 19 years.
And because we know COVID is anything but predictable, we’re offering a full refund on all tickets up until 48 hours before the gala begins.
The 2022 iteration of our gala isn’t just a chance to rub shoulders with the best Australian architects and interior designers, it’s also when we’ll be revealing, in person, the winners of last year’s IDEA awards.
In 2021, we had more than 500 entries and more than 300 shortlisted projects. At the IDEA gala, we’ll be announcing the winners of all 15 categories.
We’ll also be announcing the Project of the Year, Emerging Designer of the Year and Designer of the Year – a fierce contest between YSG, Kennedy Nolan, Arent & Pyke, Carter Williamson, Fender Katsalidis, Fiona Lynch and FMD Architects.
We’ve sold more than 450 tickets so far, and our last few tickets are selling out fast.
We are so grateful to all the practices and studios that have already bought them. This past year has been pretty stressful and we are over the moon to acknowledge, celebrate and award outstanding Australian design.
The IDEA gala party is our way of giving back to the industry and saying thank you to all the studios and practices that enter our annual awards program.
This year, we’re even more excited to be bringing everyone in the industry together in what always promises to be a fantastic night!
Don’t miss out! Get your tickets now and join us as we catch up with the friends and colleagues we haven’t seen in what feels like forever.
