Now in its 6th year, GRAY Awards — a cross-disciplinary design awards program — recognizes the incredible work happening around the world. Finalists have been selected in the fields of ARCHITECTURE, INTERIORS, LANDSCAPE, and PRODUCT DESIGN.


Designers and manufacturers were invited to submit their projects in eight judges categories plus an editors’ pick Design for Good category. An esteemed panel of international design luminaries will select a winner in each of the initial eight categories. The winning designers will receive a custom designed trophy by acclaimed glass artist John Hogan.


GRAY encourages designers and manufacturers to create "Design for Good" projects —projects that have made a positive impact through design on a humanitarian, community, or environmental issue — and offers an award dedicated to these works each year.

In 2020, when the GRAY Awards expanded from a regional to international program, GRAY added a Legacy award dedicated exclusively to a Pacific Northwest-based designer's lifetime achievement, honoring the region where GRAY began and the home to the GRAY Awards Parties. GRAY will name the next Legacy at the Party.


NEW for 2022, GRAY added several Honorable Mention categories, opening up opportunities to win GRAY Awards in micro-categories from Kitchens to Collaborations. Honorable Mention finalists will be announced on Monday, October, 10, 2022.

All winners will be announced at the GRAY Awards Party held at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle on December 5, 2022. The party is one of the most highly anticipated design bashes of the year, where all guests are treated like winners.
