The 16th Annual HD Project Awards

Hospitality Design (HD) magazine is now accepting entries for the 16th annual HD Awards! The projects portion of the awards program includes 25 categories. Projects opened between December 1, 2018 and March 1, 2020 are eligible to enter. 

Deadline for entries is March 6th, 2020

All entries must be submitted online—we will not be accepting hard copies of entries.

Step 1. Read the rules page before getting started with your entry 

The rules page explains how to enter, cost of entry, and the categories for this competition. 

Step 2. Create a login that will save all your entry information 

To access the entry form, you must first create a login. Once you create a login, you will arrive on part one of the entry form—the rules page. You will be required to certify that you have read and understood the rules document before you move on to the entry form. After that, you can begin uploading your entry info. You will be able to save it and come back at a later time to finish the process if necessary.

Step 3. Fill out the entry form

The entry form is split into three parts. The first part is to read and certify the rules page; the second part asks you to input project information; in the third part, you will upload project images.

Step 4. Pay for your entry

Entry fees are $210 for the first entry, and $120 for each additional category or entry you submit (entries in the Student category are $40). Payment is accepted with a Paypal account, or with a credit/debit card (through Paypal's website). 

More Information

We have created an Entry Guide that explains the information and materials you will need to upload for your entry, and where.
