The 2021 IDEC Video Competition will explore the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on interior design and, conversely, the ways interior design impacts quality of life during Covid-19. Students are encouraged to select a lens and convey your their authentic and unique viewpoints as emerging designers. For example, videos might examine questions such as: How can interior design promote physical and/or mental wellbeing during a global pandemic? How has the pandemic impacted your interior design educational experience? How has it transformed the way you think about design? What might interior design look like post-pandemic? And how can interior designers serve as leaders in a pandemic or post-pandemic world? The 2021 video competition seeks videos that explore the immediate and long-term impacts of Covid-19 on interior design education and/or professional practice. Successful videos will appeal to both designers and a general audience of non-designers.
Videos will be judged on 5-point scales using the following rubric:
Interior design students engaged in a higher education program of study in interior design with a minimum of 40 semester / 60 quarter hours in interior design coursework leading to a degree, certificate or diploma. Students will be required to list a faculty advisor for their project. Students may team with interior design educators and/or interior design practitioners to complete videos.
All submissions materials are due by Friday, May 28, 2021. There are several steps required for submissions:
Entries will be judged by a panel of professionals from across interior design professional organizations. The finalists will be announced online in July 2021. Cash prizes to be announced. You may contact Michelle Pearson at Michelle.Pearson@ttu.edu or Zina Alaswad at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions.
We look forward to seeing your submissions!
