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 1,000,000 readers—an eclectic mix of top-tier architects, designers, and taste-makers.

Entries will be evaluated for innovation, aesthetics, performance, and value. Products must have been introduced to the market no earlier than January 2019 and must be available through December 2020.
