2018 MASI Design Awards


in Manitoba + Alberta + Saskatchewan

The MASI Design Awards recognizes talented professionals in the interior design industry from across Manitoba, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. This event strives to become a shared platform for talented professionals in the industry to showcase their finest work and have the opportunity to gain recognition for their achievements. In 2017 the Interior Designers of Alberta (IDA), the Interior Design Association of Saskatchewan and Professional Interior Designers Institute of Manitoba (PIDIM) joined forces to present one awards event for the prairie interior design community. Calgary, Alberta was the setting of the first MASI Design Awards show on October 4, 2017, the 2nd Annual MASI Design Awards were held recently in Regina, Saskatchewan on October 18, 2018, and in 2019 PIDIM will host this event in Manitoba.

The awards competition is open to all Registered Professional members of the three interior design associations: IDA, IDAS and PIDIM. Eight categories were available for entrants to submit a project to be entered into the competition and each entry can only be submitted in one of the following categories;

  • Office over $80.00 per foot
  • Office under $80.00 per foot
  • Retail
  • Hospitality / Restaurant
  • Multi-Family Units sell price over $450,000
  • Multi-Family Units sell price under $450,000
  • Institutional / Health Care
  • Special Projects

Professionals submitted a statement describing the project, its objectives, start-up, and completion dates and project success. Projects were required to be completed within the past two years of the awards competition and ready for use or occupied. Digital images accompanied the projects the shots of the spaces, materials, fixtures, and furnishings aided judges to make informed decisions about the final impact of the project.

Nine judges assessed innovative and conceptually imaginative spaces from a variety of professional designers who reimagined how work and private space should look and function. Their challenge was to select the projects that truly embodied excellence. The array of projects that were awarded prizes on October 18, 2018, showcases the profound impact that great interior designs are having on public and private space.
