CODAworx produces the CODAawards to celebrate the design projects that most successfully integrate commissioned art into interior, architectural, or public spaces. The awards honor the individuals and the teams whose collective imaginations create the public and private spaces that inspire us every day.

We understand that design spaces are sometimes difficult to define. If you are having trouble deciding which category is appropriate, we encourage you to select one that is the closest. For example, Commercial covers just about any business, and Institutional can include any government function, from courthouses and police stations to prisons.
Jury members are allowed to enter a project into the CODAawards, but they are not permitted to jury a category where their own work has been submitted. The jury process is done remotely online, and each juror is blind to the voting by the other jury members. Total juror votes are tallied to determine the final winner in each category. In the event of a tie, representatives of CODAworx will break the tie by selecting the winner from among the tied entries.
