ABOUT AN BEST OF PRODUCTS 2022

The Architect’s Newspaper is read by industry leaders in architecture and design who rely on it as a trusted source for news, products, developments, trends, and updates. AN Interior, newly redesigned, strengthens our connection to the design community worldwide through the magazine’s specialized focus and considered treatment.

The Best of Products Awards are an opportunity for designers and manufacturers to reach our audience of 1+ million readers—an eclectic mix of top-tier architects, designers, and taste-makers.

Designers and manufacturers are invited to submit new products for review by a jury composed of architects, designers, educators, curators, and manufacturers, as well as AN editors. Entries will be evaluated for innovation, aesthetics, performance, and value. Products must have been introduced to the market no earlier than January 2021 and must be available through December 2022.
