Cast Your Ballot: Vote for Our Readers’ Choice 2020 Awards

10/13/2020 By Robert Nieminen

Nothing about 2020 has been “business as usual.” So, this year, we at interiors+sources decided to shake things up a bit and move our annual Readers’ Choice Awards for best commercial interior design products to Instagram (follow us at @interiorssource).

Reader's Choice Awards

During the weeks of October 19 and 26, the polls will officially open and readers will be able to vote each day for the winning product between two finalists chosen by our editors across 10 different categories (see complete schedule below). 

We want your votes!

We’ll give away TWO $100 Gift Cards to two lucky winners and announce them on Nov. 2. You must vote for Readers’ Choice at least once through Oct. 30 to be eligible to win.

Each day, a different product category will be featured on our Instagram page, and readers can cast their ballot for their favorite product using the poll feature. Undecided voters can find more information on the finalists on our website to make a more informed decision.


“If there’s one thing we’ve learned this year, it’s that you can’t be afraid to do things differently and try new things, which is why we’re so excited to host our annual Readers’ Choice awards on Instagram,” says Steven Sloan, publisher and brand director of i+s. “We wanted to make voting as simple and fun as possible, so readers can pick between just two finalists by answering a quick poll each day rather than sorting through pages of product information from the past year. Plus, we love connecting with people on Instagram, so it’s a win-win.”

Once all the votes have been counted, we’ll feature both the winner and the runner up in the November/December issue of the magazine and on our website.
