Awards with Integrity



e are excited to present ICONIC Design Awards, a vision I’ve had since the inception of ICONIC LIFE Magazine. Our mission is to create the most exciting awards competition
with a foundation of integrity, which is our highest priority.

We’ve lined up industry luminaries from around the country, most importantly NOT in Arizona, to serve as judges for our awards, specific to the categories. Architects will judge architecture and designers will judge design. These judges have shown expertise and excellence on a national level.

It’s important for to share a few distinguishing facets of our competition:

There is no popular voting to win these awards, no getting out the vote: winners are judged for excellence by our esteemed judges only. Entries are submitted anonymously, and are judged exclusively on the merit of their work.

The ICONIC LIFE Magazine team is not judging these awards, overseeing the judging process or “altering” the list of winners.

As the ICONIC LIFE Publisher, I am not voting, judging or adjusting any award winners. I will not even know who our winners are until the night of the event.

While we so appreciate the support of ICONIC LIFE Magazine through advertising, advertising is not taken into consideration as it relates to winning an award.

The special ICONIC Design Awards special issue that will be presented the night of the awards will be produced by one member of the ICONIC LIFE editorial team, sworn to secrecy and not allowed to share awards winners with anyone from the team. The rest of the ICONIC LIFE team will not be able to view any awards results or entries prior to publishing.

You can count on us to uphold the highest integrity in these awards.
