The Annual Institute of Designers in Ireland Awards 2013


8th November – 22nd November
Opening hours: 1pm – 5pm, Monday – Friday
Location: NCAD Gallery, 100 Thomas St, Dublin 8

The Annual Institute of Designers in Ireland Awards celebrate and recognize the very best of Irish design. It’s our industry’s foremost showcase of excellence; our proof positive that the Irish design industry continues to operate on an ever-improving scale.
Our Awards are all about improving our own collective skills and in expanding the parameters of innovation and creativity. They’re also all about showing that clients get exceptional design bang for their buck when they invest in the work of Institute members.

The central feature of the Institute of Designers in Ireland Design Awards this year is a comprehensive exhibition of the best of Irish design. From the 220 entries the judges have selected around half the entries for exhibition. This a great result as we asked the international judges to set the bar high.
We are excited that the exhibition will be held in the NCAD Gallery, National College of Art and Design, from 8th to 22nd November. Our exhibition will be one of the anchor events of Design Week, which runs from the 4th to the 10th of November and promotes design related events taking place on the island of Ireland, there are walks, talks, launches, exhibitions, and workshops

We delighted with this location as it reinforces the ever increasing important link between education and industry. Furthermore, the exhibition will allow NCAD students to see the standard they need to aspire to as they commence a career in design.

Tickets are on sale now for the IDI Awards at Vicar St. on 14th November. To book on-line please go to: http://www.idi-design.ie/designawards/
