2017 Competition Information

Entry deadlines are:

Accredited Members: January 2, 2017

We are pleased to welcome you to the site of the CDECA 2017 Decorating and Design Competition.
Once again this year we have an online system that lets you easily submit your pictures and accompanying text to CDECA.

There are nine categories for Accredited Members this year and one category for Students. The same project may not be entered in more than one category and while Accredited Members may enter in a maximum of three categories, only two submissions are permitted per category.

Students may only enter the student category; however, the submission may be either a class or real-life project.
We encourage you to review this section of our website for details.

Please click on the links to Categories, Rules, and Frequently Asked Questions before submitting your entry.

Changes from the 2016 Competition documentation are as follows:
a) There are now nine award categories. The category of “Commercial" has been eliminated.
b) There are two new categories as follows: "Powder Room" and "Challenging Budget"
The “Interior Decorating category has been split into three new budget levels:
Under $45,000, $45,000-$100,000 and over $100,000.
The Bathroom categories have been changed to Under $30,000 and Over $30,000.
c) With respect to the kitchen, bathroom and powder room categories, the entries are now required to include dimensioned floor plans that can be computer generated or hand drawn
d) You are now required to submit a headshot and brief bio of you and or your business with your entry. (If you are submitting multiple entries, you only need to submit one bio and headshot).

Please note that Award Winners will no longer be able to attend the Award portion only of the day at no charge. Come support your organization and network with your peers! The 2017 AGM & Awards Gala will be held April 24th, 2017 in Toronto.

Good luck to everyone!
