ARIDO Awards Gala
Cheers to 40 years! The 40th ARIDO Awards Gala took place on Thursday, October 5th, 2023.
It was a sparkling evening of reconnecting for the entire industry, commemorating important milestones for the Association, recognizing design leadership, and celebrating excellence in Interior Design by Registered Interior Designers.

The ceremony was hosted by ARIDO President Sabrina Carinci, and Executive Director Sharon Portelli. We recognized projects in the categories CARE, EAT + STAY, LEARN, WORK, and the annual categories of CRAFT, DISTINCT, and PRESERVE + RESTORE! 14 awards were given to Registered members, as well as the Gary Hewson Scholarship which was awarded to 9 Bachelor of Interior Design Students from across Ontario.
The ceremony was punctuated by segments of walking down each of the decades from ARIDO’s past, the 1980s, 90s, 2000s, and most recent history of the 2010s. A big thank you to the sponsors and industry partners who helped us with this section of the program.
