A-List Awards FAQ

athome A-List Awards


Who is eligible to enter a project in the A-List Awards?
Interior design, landscape and architecture professionals with projects OR firms in Connecticut are eligible to enter in any or all of our 17 categories (see list of categories below). Residential and commercial projects are eligible for entry.

What do you have to include in your entry?
You must answer a few questions regarding your project; contact information for the design professionals involved in the project; a minimum of three (and a maximum of seven) high-resolution photos of your project (300 dpi and at least 5×7); the name of your photographer(s); and the acknowledgement that you have the rights/permission to publish the photos.

What is the entry fee?
An A-List entry is $115 per submission. The optional People’s Pick entry is $35 per submission.

What is the deadline to enter?
The deadline to enter is May 1, 2018. (Yes, we often give ONE extension, but don’t delay!)

How do I enter?
The online application can be accessed by visiting athomefc.com/alist. You may enter as many projects as you wish in as many categories as you wish. The optional People’s Pick contest can be entered by selecting the “People’s Pick” payment option on the A-List submission form.

How do the A-List finalists get chosen?
All entries will be evaluated by an esteemed panel of all-star judges. Judges are each assigned a range of categories, and they choose their top three picks in each category. People’s Pick entries will be featured in an online gallery for the public to vote on their favorites in each category.

How many A-List finalists are chosen in each category?
Based on scoring from our judging panel, the top three projects in each of the 17 A-List categories will be named finalists. Note: The optional People’s Pick contest will not name any finalists, only winners.

How and when will I know if my project is a finalist?
If your project is a finalist, you will be notified via email by the end of June. Note: The optional People’s Pick contest will not name any finalists, only winners.

When and where do you announce the A-List winners?
A-List finalists are invited to the A-List Awards Gala on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at the Palace Theatre in Stamford. The celebrity judges in attendance and event sponsors will personally announce the winner of each category.

When do you announce the People’s Pick winners?
Online voting for the People’s Pick will run from June 13 until August 1. After public voting has closed in August, the project in each category with the most votes is the winner of that category. Winners will be announced in athome‘s special A-List issue (the November/December issue). Note: After the submission period ends in May, if a category doesn’t have the minimum number of entries we require for healthy competition, the category will be pulled from the People’s Pick contest and all entrants in that category will be refunded the People’s Pick entry fee.

Do I need to purchase tickets to the Gala, or are my tickets complimentary as a finalist?
A-List finalists receive four (4) complimentary tickets to the A-List Awards Gala. If you’re a finalist in more than one category, you will receive a maximum of six (6) complimentary tickets. Finalists who wish to buy additional tickets can purchase them for $55 each. Tickets available to the general public are $65 each. Tickets will be available for sale at athomefc.com beginning in June.

What type of exposure can I expect to receive before/after the event as a finalist or a winner?
A special A-List program booklet featuring project photos and professional listings for every A-List finalist project will be included in all six of our Moffly publications in September. Finalist and winning projects will then be profiled in athome‘s special A-List issue (the November/December issue), and People’s Pick contest winners will be announced in this issue as well. We will also list A-List winners and finalists and People’s Pick winners on athomefc.com.

What are the categories?
There are 17 categories to enter for the A-List Awards (Note: Moffly Media reserves the right to split categories (i.e., Bath Design may be split into Bath Design: Trad/Classic and Bath Design: Transitional/Modern), and/or reassign projects to different categories as needed):

Interior Designers

As we look to fall, we move indoors and begin to enjoy our interior spaces. We cozy up by the fireplace, host more family gatherings, entertain more and generally seek to freshen up our interior spaces. Recently, we met with 10 top area interior designers to talk shop. Below, they offer a few simple tricks of the trade for sprucing up your interiors without doing a major overhaul or breaking the bank. You’re welcome.

Sample Page

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.
