We're thrilled to announce the second annual Remodelista Considered Design Awards, in which we honor our readers' domestic spaces and design acumen. Read on to learn more about the contest (and the custom lamp from Jielde you stand to win).
Have a kitchen you're insanely proud of? A bath that's a labor of love? A bedroom that lulls you to sleep? Every day, we show you the spaces we love; now it's your turn to share.
Our awards program is open to all readers—and we're hoping to see living quarters of all sorts, from tiny rentals to new builds. We have separate categories for amateur designers and professional work, and a swoon-worthy prize: each winner will receive a Jielde SI333 Signal Desk Lamp in bronze, a special-edition produced exclusively for Remodelista. And each winning project will be spotlighted on Remodelista. Winners will be announced on August 9.
This year, we have an exciting new addition: a panel of guest judges. You'll recognize many of these design-world luminaries; stay tuned for the full roster on Tuesday.
We will run a separate contest for amateur and professional designers in each of these categories:
Best Kitchen Space
Best Living/Dining Space
Best Bedroom Space
Best Bath Space
Best Office Space
Outdoor enthusiasts, note: the Gardenista Considered Design Awards have seven new categories this year, including several for architects and other spatial designers, such as Best Garden Shed or Outbuilding, Best Hardscape Project, and Best Outdoor Living Space. Head over to Gardenista for details.

We've done our best to simplify the entry process. At our contest site, you can submit up to six photos of your space along with a descriptive caption for each photo and a design statement explaining your overall project. You can submit one project in each category for which you qualify. All projects will be published in the Gallery tab of the contest site within a few minutes of submitting. The guest judge in each category will work with Remodelista editors to review all entries and choose up to five finalists in each category. When we announce our finalists on July 16, Remodelista readers will be invited to vote.
