About ADEX

ADEX stands for Awards for Design Excellence and is the largest and most prestigious awards program for product & project design in the A&D industry.

Designjournalmag.com is the international trade resource for interior designers, architects and facility managers since 1988 and the proud sponsor of the ADEX Awards.

ADEX Judging

An anonymous panel of professionals representing a cross section of the design industry conducts all voting for the ADEX Awards.

ADEX judges are among the A&D industry's most respected in their respective areas of expertise. The ADEX Award represents the best product and project designs of the year in the opinion of those who matter the most.

Each category has potential for three award levels of platinum, gold or silver. Judges award points in several categories for each entry. Total points earned determine each product's score. Minimum scores are needed to qualify for each award level. Winners are announced each April in Design Publications.

The ADEX Awards is clearly the largest and most prestigious awards program in the design industry and this year promises to be the biggest and best ever - by far.
