Winners to be announced August 31 and profiled in our September issue!

Every September issue of Western Living celebrates the best in Western Canadian design with our Designers of the Year awards. We're celebrating the 10th anniversary of the competition this fall, and were thrilled to see hundreds of entries flood in from B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba... and even the Yukon. Our editorial team and all-star judging panel had a big job to do, poring over all of the amazing submissions and narrowing the selections down to a shortlist of top contenders, but now we're thrilled to announce our finalists in each of our nine categories below. Winners will be announced August 31, celebrated in our September issue, and honoured at our annual DOTY galas in Vancouver and Calgary. Keep connected with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram or subscribe to our newsletter to follow all our #wldoty updates. Congratulations to all of this year’s incredible finalists, and thank you so much to everyone who entered: every year, the design talent here in Western Canada just blows us away.
