Get out your cameras: We're thrilled to announce the 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 lantern from Casamidy you stand to win). Entries due by June 14.

At Remodelista, we love to hear from our readers; you continually inspire us with your design acumen. In that spirit, we're inviting you to submit your personal design triumphs to our first Remodelista Considered Design Awards. Have a kitchen you're insanely proud of? A bath that's a labor of love? A bedroom that lulls you to sleep every night? The awards program is open to all readers—whether you're an urban dweller in a tiny apartment, a homeowner who has just completed your first remodel, or an architect or designer with a project you're especially proud of.

And for the outdoor enthusiasts among us, head over to the Gardenista Considered Design Awards, seeking projects in five other categories.
We've done our best to make the entry process as simple as possible: Submit up to six photos of your space, along with a brief design statement. Remodelista judges will review all entries and choose up to five finalists in each category. When we announce our finalists, friends, family, and fellow Remodelista readers will be invited to vote. You can enter up to ten times in total across both sites. All projects will be published at the conclusion of the contest.
