2018 FX International Interior Design Awards - Shortlist Announced!

Congratulations to all of you who have made the shortlist! Our judges have fought your corner, and so lets hope that you could be our winner for this year.

Winners will be announced on 28 November 2018, celebrating world-class design excellence with a glamorous black tie ceremony at the Grosvenor Hotel in London.

Each year we invite a completely new panel of more than 20 judges from all disciplines, based on their authority, integrity and experience. The panel of distinguished experts are the very best from our contract design industry, including designers, architects, engineers and clients, judge the awards - and each category has been judged by a different panel of judges. So if you're not shortlisted in one category, you could be shortlisted in another.

All winners will be announced at the ceremony and presented with a fabulous Armourcoat trophy. In addition to honouring the best in the industry, the event also allows for seven hours of free networking and partying, both before and after dinner.

See below for 2017’s photos, guest list and winners, as well as details of the 2018 ceremony.

Come and join us to celebrate design excellence. Contact Tony Thompson at fxawards@btinternet.com for the last few remaining seat places and tables.

We hope to see you there!
