Entries are now open for the 35th Dulux Colour Awards, inviting design professionals including architects, interior designers, specifiers and students from New Zealand and Australia, to submit work that celebrates sophisticated and masterful use of colour across interior and exterior commercial, public and residential spaces.
Davina Harper, Dulux Colour Specialist says the acclaimed awards programme provides design professionals the opportunity to showcase their cutting-edge use of colour in built spaces. “It’s evident that architects and designers are increasingly using colour as an integral design tool to provide a space meaning — in both its functional and environmental contexts,” Davina says. “Dulux is eager to see their creative employment of colour across a vast breadth of architectural genres with this year’s submissions.”
The 2021 Dulux Colour Awards is accepting entries until Monday 24 May 2021 across the following categories:
- Commercial Interior — Workplace and Retail
- Commercial Interiors — Public and Hospitality
- Commercial and Multi-residential Exterior
- Residential Interior
- Single Residential Exterior
- Student (years 1 – 6)
Each category winner will receive AUD $1,000 in prize money (winners of the Student category will receive AUD $500). NZ Finalists will have the opportunity to be judged for the NZ Grand Prix title — Best in show selected from New Zealand finalists in each category, excluding student category. The winner will receive NZD $5,000.
Entries are encouraged from individuals, groups, partnerships, and those working in larger practices.
Projects must have been completed between 1 September 2019 and 28 February 2021 and may not have been previously entered into this awards programme. The finalist shortlist will be announced in June 2021 and projects will be appraised by a panel of industry leaders across New Zealand and Australia.
