The Life in Color Contest

Submit your project for FREE consideration in Midwest Home’s Sept/Oct 2019 Issue

Design Impacts Lives. Tell Us Your Story.

Midwest Home promotes the value of good design and brings our readers insight into how good design enhances the quality of their lives. We inform readers about new design trends and home products, and feature the work of local design professionals.

For the 2019 Life in Color competition, Midwest Home is requesting project submissions from ASID-MN designers.  We are seeking vibrant designs that showcase the designers’ use of color and creativity, and successfully fulfill the clients’ needs and wants. 

Each design firm may submit up to two entries. All submissions will be entered into a blind judging led by Midwest Home and professional judges.

Up to six projects will be selected to appear in the Life in Color feature in the September/October issue of Midwest Home magazine.

If you have any questions while filling out the submission form, please contact Katie Hickman at

2019 submission forms are due by 11:59 p.m. on May 31, 2019 

Judging occurs the first two weeks of June.
