The Manitoba Association of Architects (MAA), the Professional Interior Designers Institute of Manitoba (PIDIM), and the Manitoba Association of Landscape Architects (MALA) will celebrate outstanding contributions to the social, cultural, artistic and economic development of the province of Manitoba and the enhancement of the quality of life through excellence in design with the reintroduction of the Premier’s Award for Design Excellence (PADE).

Each entry must include between 3-5 digital images from the entry submission, as well as an image of the board submission and a brief description summarizing the project (no more than 100 words).
