The Design Exchange Awards, presented by Canadian Business, promotes Canadian design excellence and recognizes the critical role of design in all types of organizations including commercial entities (large and small), not-for-profit organizations, and the public sector. The Awards celebrate the success stories achieved through close partnerships between clients and designers. The DXAs are Canada’s only award program to judge design by results, balancing function, aesthetics, and economic success.
A jury of leading business executives, designers and community leaders will select Award of Excellence and Award of Merit winners in each of the 12 categories, with one project winning Best of Category in each.
DXA winners will be listed in Canadian Business‘s best-selling December issue (the annual “Rich100” edition), which is on newsstands for up to three months. As a result, your company will become visible to Canadian Business‘s total readership of 985,000! As well, winners are featured in a major exhibition at the Design Exchange. Past DXA exhibits have travelled across Canada and as far afield as Korea, to be shown alongside the best in international design. Winners are also featured in press releases and in Express, the DX newsletter (reaching a readership of over 20,000). Winners are celebrated by their peers in the Canadian design disciplines at a gala Awards Dinner an invaluable networking opportunity for established and new designers alike.
