To IIDA SoCal Membership and Sponsors

After much discussion and listening to our members and sponsors, we believe it is in the best interest of our design community to reschedule Calibre 2020 as a virtual event, to be launched on YouTube on August 27, 2020.

At 5:00pm on Thursday, August 27, we will announce the 2020 Calibre Design Awards and Student Award winners. We recognize that Calibre is the networking event for our industry and that we all look forward to seeing and making friends. While we cannot provide the same venue to which we are accustomed, we hope that you will join your teammates – either virtually or while maintaining the proper social distance – at 5:00 on August 27 to share in the excitement.

We are starting to make plans for Calibre 2021, where the 2020 Design Award recipients to be invited to be recognized in person and on stage.

We want to sincerely thank our members and sponsors, for your continued support of Calibre and making it the premier event of our industry. Please stay safe and mark your calendars for 5:00pm Thursday, August 27, 2020 for the announcement of the 2020 winners, and Friday, May 21, 2021, where we will see each other once again at Calibre 2021.

Here is the link to the YouTube video where the winners are announced. We hope you enjoy the virtual awards ceremony, and we look forward to seeing you in person next year!

Student Awards

IIDA Southern California also recognizes our future design leaders. Student members throughout the Chapter are invited to participate in an annual portfolio and Charette competition. The competitions are organized by the IIDA SoCal Board of Directors, and an esteemed panel of professionals act as jurors at the events. Our Chapter provides monetary awards in recognition of outstanding student work each academic year. The top students receive a sponsored ticket to the Calibre Awards Gala where they are presented with their awards.
