The Architect’s Newspaper speaks directly to leaders in architecture and design with news, products, developments, trends, and updates. Through our magazine, AN Interior, our outreach to the design community has grown enormously over the past five years.
The Best of Product Awards is 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, engineers; construction, and design professionals, 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 2020 and must be available through December 2021.Enter Today
