On the heels of a very successful inaugural year, Design For A Difference has officially launched year two in showrooms across the country. To see last year’s Grand Prize Winner and their complete makeover video click here.
Brought to you by the International Design Guild, the next incarnation of this fantastic contest will give one talented designer $25,000 in goods and resources to makeover a space at a local charity of choice. Yes, we’ve upped the prize from $20,000 last year.

In addition to the Grand Prize winner, four regional winners will each be awarded $2,000 to jump start their makeover at their nominated charity. All five winners will then be flown to the Grand Prize city to be a part of the makeover process which will be professionally shot and produced to premiere on IDGdesigner.com and other on-line sites in early 2015. And I will be there to collaborate with the team every step of the way.
As many of you may know, local charities spend a significant portion of their budgets on community programs and services and very little on their own space. The folks at IDG and I wanted to create a program that gives back to these organizations that already give so much to others.
If you or anyone you know is a designer, design student or architect, please consider getting involved. Or if you work with a local charity, check out IDGcontest.com to partner with a designer near you. The entry process is simple and the DFAD Entry form 2014 is easy to complete.
Entries are being accepted now until June 1st, 2014. Click here for the Design For A Difference fact sheet 2014.
If you’re not a designer, I’d still love to hear about your dream design for a local charity of your choice in the comments below.
Until next time…
