The IDA Jury are a selected panel of industry experts from each of the five IDA disciplines – Architecture, Fashion, Interior, Product and Graphic Design. Their talents and contributions to their respective fields are genuinely aspirational and all jurors have at least fifteen years experience and are in leading or founder positions within their organisations. IDA asks each judge to use the same criteria when reviewing the designs. View the juding criteria here.
