The Loeries call for designers
The Loerie Awards 2005 is calling for more entries from the interior design and architectural communities. Loerie Awards managing director, Andrew Human, says brand-based architecture, as well as interior or exterior design, is eligible for entry in the 'Three Dimensional & Environmental Design' sub-category of Design.
"This means the awards are open to architects, interior designers, decorators, landscape artists, and environmental designers, who have played a major role in interpreting and reflecting a company or brand as a physical manifestation."
The Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg walked off with a Grand Prix in the Design Category in 2003.
"All environments or physical elements - be they retail, educational, hospitality-orientated, etcetera - are key components in communication design and are eligible for entry, as long as they make a contribution to a brand's equity," says Human.
Examples of work that could be entered are:
Anyone involved in the creation, production or publication of the work may submit an entry. All work must 'come into being' for the first time between 1 June 2004 and 31 July 2005. The deadline for entries is 31 July 2005. All entry information is available on the website, www.theloerieawards.co.za.
