Get nominating...

It's that time of year again. Nominations for the 2010 CID Awards are officially open - and we are eagerly awaiting your entries.

Last year's event was an overwhelming success. In spite of the economic slowdown and the highly challenging operating conditions that ensued, the number of entries put forward for CID Award increased by 100% in 2009, as compared to the year before.

What was particularly encouraging was the number of companies that decided to get involved. The awards were designed to celebrate the diversity and breadth of the region's interior design industry, and that can only really happen if companies of all sizes, from all around the region, take part.

This year, we want to make the awards broader and more diverse than ever. So, whether this is your first project or your 31st, we want to hear from you. Whether you are a one-man show in Kuwait or part of a 100-person team in Abu Dhabi, we want to hear from you. We want the CID Awards 2010 to be reflective of the industry as a whole, so we want to hear from you all.

All entries will have to be submitted online this year, through the following website: www.constructionweekonline.com/cidawards . We've tried to make the submission process as straightforward as possible, but do get in touch with either myself or my colleague, Annie Chinoy (annie.chinoy@itp.com) if you have any questions at all.

The fourth annual CID Awards will take place on Tuesday November 9 at the Park Hyatt Dubai, and the deadline for all entries is September 15. We are busy putting this year's judging panel together and will reveal full details shortly.

We look forward to receiving your entries, and to working with you to make this year's CID Awards the most successful yet.

Selina Denman, is the editor of Commercial Interior Design.
