Congratulating the finalists, Dr. Leong states that though the decision of the judges were made based on strict requirements they are still subject, to some degree, the subjective preferences of the judges, and should not be regarded as an absolute reflection of the performance of the other participants who did not make the list.
He adds that the judging process was performed entirely without the judges knowing any of the
identities of the participants in an effort to be as fair as possible.
of JDA is two-fold: in addition to celebrating the awards, its goal is to also help
all interior designers learn and improve their own capabilities and thus raise
the standard of the industry as a whole.
The 1st and 2nd finalists will be announced on Gala Night, following the main awards ceremony, this May on 17th May 2019.
The event will begin with forum session, with judges sharing about their current projects as well as market challenges and design trends in SEA, followed by a full-day exhibition of the works of the finalists before kicking off the actual Gala Night event.
