An emission from the mothership informs us you’ve got until October 15 to submit work for STEP Inside Design’s STEP 100, which they tell us is the only design competition that interviews all 100 winners. They’ll also put up all the finalists on the website and let people vote for the Readers’ Choice award, which last year went to six pieces you can see online.

So you can get a head start on mailing those care packages filled with pricey wine and rare cheeses, the judges are: Lemon fresh Kevin Grady, Grady & Metcalf, Chicago and Boston; Dancin’ fool Bill Grant, Grant Design Collaborative, Canton, Ga.; Nice Midwestern boy Jamie Koval, VSA Partners, Chicago; Petrula “Little Thunder” Vrontikis, Vrontikis Design Office, Los Angeles; and barn owner Ann Willoughby, Willoughby Design, Kansas City.
