And the winner will be…

NDA’s Director of Studies, Anthony Rayworth, will be one of the judges at The New Design Britain Awards at this year’s Interiors UK event at Birmingham NEC.

Running from 22 to 25 January, Interiors UK is the UK’s largest trade interiors exhibition and provides a unique opportunity for Interior Designers, Retailers, Architects and Contractors to witness the latest in traditional and modern furniture, lighting, flooring, soft furnishings and accessories.

The New Design Britain Awards, being judged on the 23rd January, are one of the most recognised competitions in the UK for young design talent, giving recognition to students for innovative and ground-breaking work.

Will Anthony be judging you?

There are four categories, each with its own panel of judges: Fabric, Furnishing Accessories, Furniture, and Surface Covering. Anthony will be on the judging panel for the Furniture category, looking forward to the event he said: “I’m very pleased to have been asked to be on the judging panel this year, I’ve been going to Interiors UK for several years now and have always found it to be a great place to see both emerging talent and established companies involved in interior design.”

In a bid to get people thinking about design prior to the show, Interiors UK have launched a Facebook game. Designed to test your knowledge of design classics, Do You Know Your Design? offers prizes to everyone who plays the game. To find out more and play the game visit: http://on.fb.me/tv5Azf.

For those who can’t attend the show, NDA will be reporting on it in this blog, so stay tuned!
