Contract magazine has issued a final deadline of February 16 for its 2011 Inspirations Awards. The annual competition, now entering its third year and sponsored by Tandus Flooring, aims to recognize commitment in the built and unbuilt environments to social responsibility in commercial interior design and architecture, as well as cause-related work by the A&D community.
Winning projects will each receive a $5,000 grant to the cause supported by this inspirational work. Submissions will be evaluated in two categories—Projects (conceptual or completed) and Practice (cause-related efforts)—by a professional A&D panel of judges, which includes: Marsha Maytum, FAIA, LEED AP, founding partner, Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects; Neil P. Frankel, FAIA, FIIDA, professor, University of Wisconsin School of Architecture & Urban Planning, and principal, Frankel + Coleman; and Susan Piedmont-Palladino, professor, Washington Alexandria Architecture Center College of Architecture and Urban Studies, Virginia Tech.
FINAL DEADLINE for entry is February 16. Winners will be notified by March 4, 2011. Inspirations awards will be bestowed in Boston on April 6, 2011. Work will appear in a future issue of Contract magazine and ContractDesign.com.
