IDEA 2022 Ceremony

You are cordially invited to attend the IDEA Ceremony in person on September 12, 2022 at the Benaroya Hall in Seattle, Washington.

As part of the International Design Conference, this formal ceremony announces all of the award winners of the 2022 competition. The ceremony is followed by the IDEA Gala (generously sponsored by Samsung Design) where you can enjoy food and beverages while you mix and mingle and take pictures with the IDEA trophies.

This is a ticketed event. Register to attend in-person or watch virtually.


IDEA Winner Trophies

You will receive (1) one personalized high quality trophy for each winning design. In an effort to cut our carbon footprint, complimentary trophies will be shipped directly to you from the manufacturer. Please confirm your shipping address by August 15 here.

Additional trophies can be purchased here until October 15. The cost for each additional trophy is $525 for domestic (USA) shipments and $625 for international (outside USA) shipments. Additional trophies ordered will be shipped in November. 

Please note: Tophies will not be distributed at the in-person ceremony. We will have blank trophies at the IDEA Ceremony and Gala for photos as you receive your awards, and you won't have to worry about packing them home from the conference with you.



IDEA Winner Logos & Certificates

Part of your winner’s reward is the use of the IDEA logo mark in collateral associated with the winning product. This may include (but is not limited to) social media, product packaging, websites, or advertisements.

Logo packages for each winning product are available with your downloadable winner certificates by logging into your IDEA account. The IDEA Award and Finalist logos are supplied in the following variations, with and without transparency. File types: .eps, .png, .jpg
