ANY GRAND DESIGN you’ve completed that you don’t think has got the credit all those hours you’ve spent worrying deserve?

Well, RTÉ is running a new series aiming to crown Ireland’s ‘Home of the Year’.

The show is scheduled to start airing in the spring but if you think your place deserves such an honorific than you’ve only until 16 January to submit an application.

It’s being put together by production company Screentime Shinawil who are seeking applications, not just from homeowners, but also from architects and designers.

The makers say they are looking for a “self-built passion project, an unusual conversion or restoration or a beautiful example of modern Irish architecture.”

They also say they’re especially looking for homes with “personality and clever design” and those designed under a range of budgets.

A panel of three judges will choose the winner with homes from every part of Ireland encouraged to apply.

Anyone who wants to get more information about nominating their own home or someone else is being asked to get in touch by email.
