Voters are encouraged to rally behind their favorite work in CODAawards. Landscape, Residential, Healthcare, Commercial, Institutional, Liturgical, Public Spaces, Transportation, Hospitality, and Education are the categories.

This year’s 446 CODAawards entries represent $141 million in commission fees and projects from 30 countries. The diversity of artwork includes a full-scale ‘Cathedral of Thorns’ in the Dutch West Indies by artist/designer Herman van Bergen. Donald Lipski’s ‘SPOT,’ a 2-1/2 story tall Dalmatian balancing a real Prius taxi cab on its nose for NYU Langone’s new Children’s Hospital is also featured.

Cindy Allen (EIC, Interior Design), Lisa Kim (Director, Ford Gallery), and Jennifer Kolstad (Chair, American Society of Interior Design) are among the 16 jurors in the design and art worlds. The jurors have spent weeks reviewing and scoring all entries. They will agree on one winner in each category to create the 2020 CODAawards winners circle. The two People’s Choice CODAawardees are selected by the general public.

CODAworx is the hub of the commissioned art economy, and CODAawards celebrates these works. The 12-day People’s Choice voting sprint (June 18 – 30) becomes quite heated and the heavy traffic sometimes brings the website down.

“It’s the art world’s equivalent of the Tour de France!” says avid biker and CODAworx CEO Toni Sikes.

CODAworx is a site where architects, real estate developers, and public art agencies can discover and hire talent for large-scale commission projects. Their members have published a vast treasure trove of over 7,000 projects on the website.

CODAworx produces the eight-year-old CODAawards recognition program with their National Media Partner Interior Design magazine, honoring the designers, architects, and artists whose collective imaginations create the public and private spaces that inspire us daily.
