ARIDO Awards Gala

The ARIDO Awards Gala continues to be the industry’s premier design awards event in Ontario. The ongoing pandemic has enabled the opportunity to reinvent how we recognize and celebrate interior design excellence in Ontario. We have also found new ways to remain connected and celebrate together.

Join us September 29th for a hybrid gala with a live-stream announcing the awards and satellite events around the province in industry showrooms and offices. Small satellite events will also include award winners participating at their design firm offices.

This year, the Gala will be the closing event of the new Interior Design Week event to elevate our gathering as a community and showcase excellence in Interior Design for Ontario.

Awards Categories

This year we will be recognizing projects in the following categories: GATHER+PLAY, LIVE, LIVE TOGETHER, SHOP, PRESERVE+RESTORE, DISTINCT, CRAFT, and the IMPACT AWARD.

Event Host and MC

We’re delighted to welcome back Jennifer Valentyne as our livestream MC.
