Since 1982, ARIDO has held an annual awards program for all Registered members. The ARIDO Awards is one of the most highly regarded honors in the interior design community. Showcasing excellence, innovation, and originality in interior design, the awards bring superior design to the forefront each year. ARIDO's award ceremony annually recognizes winning projects in ten different categories: residential; retail spaces; workplaces; health-care facilities; marketing centres; public and institutional spaces; hotels and recreational spaces; restaurants, bars, and clubs; restoration and adaptive reuse; and special projects.

Each entry is judged on its own merit by esteemed representatives from business, media, and design. In their submissions, entrants are asked to consider existing design elements, budget and project objectives, strategies employed, overall creativity, examples of project results, and sustainability and collaborative elements. After careful consideration and discussion, an Award of Merit is given to projects that score between 75 and 89 percent. Awards of Excellence are bestowed on projects that score between 90 and 100 percent.

While recognizing the exceptional work of ARIDO members, the ARIDO Awards also serve to raise public awareness of the power and effect of interior design among the Ontario public.
