Call for Entries for Asia Young Designer Awards 2019

Now on its 11th year, the Asia Young Designer Awards once again is encouraging Interior Design and Architecture students to send in their entries to this prestigious competition. This year's theme is- Forward: A Sustainable Future.

"Sustainability focuses of the needs of the present without compromising the ability of the future generation to meet their needs. For the AYDA, it means giving equal opportunity in crafting and creating our plans. It means pushing for progress and development but not but not at the expense of the fleeting enjoyment of the present."

The AYDA 2019 competition is for Architecture and Interior Design students (3rd year and up). A student may submit one (1) entry only until November 22, 2019. Entries should be sent in a CD or USB and in a folder named "Presentation Board" that includes JPEG files at 3000dpi resolution, along with a copy of SY2019-20 School ID, filled-out entry form, and a 2x2 photo (3000dpi) JPEG file. Entries should be mailed to: Mr. Nezrald Landicho, Nippon Paint Marketing Officer, Nippon Paint (Coatings) Philippines Inc., G/F CSP Building, 173 EDSA Mandaluyong City.
