GRAY AWARDS

Now in its third year, the initiative—the first cross-disciplinary, regionally focused design awards program, developed by GRAY Media—invites the best and brightest in the fields of architecture, design, and fashion to enter their work for a coveted opportunity: to be honored at the party of the year, taking place on November 21, 2019. Winners will be selected by an esteemed panel of international design luminaries, who, together with GRAY and hundreds of VIP guests, will toast to the most exciting ideas in design today. 

Winners will be announced during the GRAY Awards party on November 21, 2019.

Submission deadline: August 16 2019


HOT NEW NEXT

HOT NEW NEXT is a competition for designers based in the Pacific Northwest region of the US and Canada to hone their pitches, prepare them for next steps, and gain valuable media recognition through GRAY.

In this Shark Tank-style program, each selected contestant presents a rapid-fire pitch of their compelling new design-related concept or product to an expert panel of judges and live audience. The audience will vote for a People's Choice winner at each event. Each judging panel will determine one winner per preliminary round—held in Portland, Seattle, Vancouver—to advance to the championship round held on the GRAY Stage during IDS Vancouver at the Vancouver Convention Centre West (the most prolific design show on the west coast!)

Submission deadline: June 2 2019

Event dates:

Portland, OR: April 8, 2019 at Design Within Reach

Vancouver, BC: June 11, 2019 at Salari Fine Carpets

Seattle, WA: July 30, 2019 at Seattle Design Center

Championship Round: Sep. 28, 2019 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West during Interior Design Show Vancouver
