This year's shortlist spotlights the very best in the West... stay tuned for the winners, announced August 31 online and in our September issue.
Each year, Western Living celebrates the best in Western Canadian design with our Designers of the Year September issue, and each year, we’re thrilled by our region’s home-grown talent. Entries poured in from across the West—from Victoria to Winnipeg and everywhere in between—and all-star judging panel got to work, making their way through hundreds of incredible submissions to pull out just a few for our shortlist of finalists.
Winners for each of the nine categories will be announced August 31, celebrated in our September issue, and honoured at our annual DOTY gala in Vancouver on September 17. Want to be part of the big celebration? Get your ticket right here (and the sooner, the better… early bird pricing won’t last long!) Keep connected with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram or subscribe to our newsletter to follow all our #wldoty updates.
Congratulations to everyone on our shortlist for our 11th annual Designers of the Year competition, and thank you to everyone who took the time to enter this year. You all make the West a beautiful place to live.
