When can I apply for WADE ASIA AWARDS?
WADE AWARDS open up during the month of December - January every year. Keep a close watch on the website www.wadeasia.com and social media pages.
Why does WADE ASIA focus on women?
We ask, 'why not?'
Women architects, interior designers, and professionals in real estate, construction, engineering and art comprise of almost 35-40% of the fraternity. They are strong decision-makers when it comes to design, aesthetics, sustainability, luxury and more. They are emerging as powerful contenders in designing the new India, livable cities, and healthy lifestyles.
With all the opportunities that are there, women needed a platform that supports, recognizes their contribution and put them on a higher pedestal where their work is more visible. Women usually put networking in the back seat and focus on the multiple roles they have as professionals and roles at home as nurturers. WADE ASIA recognized this need in the bud and started the platform way back in 2016.
Can I apply for WADE AWARDS even if I am not working in India?
Currently, we accept projects which are based in India and from women working in India.
Do you also have awards through nominations?
Every year, WADE ASIA recognizes top women in the built spaces through nominations. These awards are not limited to India.
The categories are:
- • WADE India Role Model Of The Year Award
- • WADE India Special Contribution Award
- • WADE India Academia Award
- • WADE India Sustainability Champion of the Year
- • WADE India Art Maestro Award

Can women professionals in architecture, working for firms, participate in WADE ASIA?
