Interior design is a growth industry. It is one of the most popular take-up degrees at university albeit the public perception and appreciation for the benefits of good interior design is progressing it remains misunderstood, under-appreciated and under-valued by associated professions. The SBID International Design Awards revere those within the creative industries who have shaped their specific industry sector and bestow the title Fellow of the Year, an accolade to reflect their achievements.
The central objective of SBID is to promote the profession at the highest level of competence while supporting the interests of professionally qualified interior designers and manufacturers. By guiding and measuring the profession’s trading standards through practice, competence and education, SBID creates a clear separation between professionals and hobbyists and continually challenges the industry for positive change where size and dominance has reigned unethically, by exclusion, favouritism or anti-competitive conduct.
