About the competition

The grand finale of Sico’s New Talent Excellence Award took place last May, it was presented in collaboration with Index-Design. Growing in popularity year after year, this competition showcased the best up-and-coming interior decorators and interior designers from the province of Quebec and the city of Ottawa. We provide a blank canvas and they presented their own personal colour-focused project.

The grand finale for this 10th edition took place at the Montreal Science Centre, on Thursday, May 26, 2016. A finalist from each participating school was on site to showcase their project and, among all the finalists, one grand prize winner was chosen in each of the categories: interior decorating graduates and interior design graduates. An independent jury selected the grand prize winners.

The jury made their choices based on the following evaluation criteria:

  • The creation of a project in which colour is a key element
  • The appropriate use of SICO® paint
  • The artistic aspect of both the concept and the materials
  • Creativity and innovation
  • Quality of the oral presentation
