You may have noticed we’ve got a couple of new awards this year for our WL Designers of the Year Awards.

In addition to the 9 categories judged by our panels of design pros from around the world, we’ll have a brand-new People’s Choice Awards. The winners of those awards will be announced live on stage at our WL Designers of the Year event on September 12.

So how do you enter the 2024 People’s Choice Awards?

The good news is: there isn’t anything you have to do. When we release the WL Designers of the Year finalist list in late June, all finalists will automatically be entered in the 2024 WL People’s Choice Awards. Voting will commence, and winners will be revealed come September 12.

It does mean it’s time to get your entry into the 2024 WL Designers of the Year awards now! Deadline is April 1, 2024—and there are 9 categories, from interior design and architecture to maker and fashion design.

Still debating? Here’s what our 2022 Industrial Designer of the Year, Mario Paredes of Workbench Studio had to say about the impact on his business.

Receiving the DOTY award in industrial design and being recognized by the design community were instrumental in growing my practice. It showcased my work to a much wider audience and also provided my studio with the momentum needed to expand its network. I encourage both seasoned and emerging designers to apply for such awards, as they can significantly elevate your career and open doors to new horizons. —Mario Paredes, Workbench Studio
