The Theme

Understanding human-environment relationships is at the core of an interior designer’s knowledge base. Through training and education, we learn to craft spaces with a deeply human-centered approach. But how well does the general public comprehend our expertise in this area? The 2018 IDEC Video Competition seeks compelling entries that will engage a general audience to think differently about the human-centered interior design and the impact our profession has on user lives and experience. We ask that submissions focus on one of the following themes:

  • Culture
  • Pedagogy
  • Practice
  • Social Impact
  • Boundaries

These themes align with the IDEC 2018 annual conference tracks and descriptions of each theme can be found online here:  https://www.idec.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageID=4556

Video Requirements

The video must be between 1-3 minutes in length. Be efficient and succinct! Videos from past years can be viewed here: http://www.idec.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageID=3724 

No copyright or infringing content (audio or video) can be included. You can learn more about these issues in quirky, informative online videos such as this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InzDjH1-9Ns. Any citations should be included on the final screen of the video.

Creative approaches to the video are encouraged. This could include imagery, interviews, testimonials, demonstrations, case studies, or non-traditional ideas including copyright-permissible music. The video should be entertaining and positive with a message that advocates our profession.
