RULES AND REGULATIONS 

WHO CAN ENTER  Architects and other design professionals practicing in any region may enter one or more submissions. All entries must be commissioned by paying clients for execution. Proposals may be for any location. All entries must have been commissioned for compensation by clients with the contractual intention and the authority to carry out the submitted proposal. Projects must have a completion date after January 1, 2019.

REAL PROJECTS ONLY  All entries must have been commissioned for compensation by clients with the contractual intention and the authority to carry out the submitted proposal. A project entered in a design competition is eligible only if it is a proposal the competition’s sponsor intends to build.

ARCHITECTURAL AND URBAN DESIGN ENTRIES  Architectural design entries may only include works of architecture scheduled to be completed after January 1, 2019. Urban design entries must have been accepted by a client who intends to base future development on them; please include an implementation time line.

VERIFICATION OF CLIENT  Awards and citations are contingent upon ARCHITECT’s verification that selected projects meet all eligibility requirements, including ARCHITECT’s direct contact with clients. ARCHITECT reserves the right to make the final decision on eligibility and accepts no liability in that regard.

PROVIDING ADDITIONAL MATERIALS  Entrants whose submissions are selected as winners agree to make available further information and publication-quality graphic materials as needed by ARCHITECT.

PUBLICATION  All entries will be featured online in ARCHITECT’s Project Gallery. Winners will be published in the February 2019 issue of ARCHITECT and online. Additionally, winners of P/A design awards or citations grant ARCHITECT first publication rights for their winning projects while under construction or when complete or substantially complete (at ARCHITECT’s discretion). Publication may not coincide with building completion, but ARCHITECT retains first publication rights to the project for up to one year of building completion.

AWARD  P/A Awards winners will be announced first in the February 2019 issue of ARCHITECT. Winners will be honored and presented with an award at an event in New York in February 2019.

ENTRY CATEGORIES  Identify each submission on its entry form by type (see categories above). Mixed-use facilities should be classified by the largest function. There is no “miscellaneous” category. Only one category may be selected per project, and each project may only be entered once.

PROCESS DOCUMENTATION  Entries should document the design process, as well as its result. Include information on software, hardware, and hand media employed. ARCHITECT encourages entrants to include copies of preliminary sketches, alternative preliminary schemes, information on context, precedents for the design, and excerpts from working drawings, all of which should be submitted in .jpg or Word .doc format.

PROJECT RESEARCH  Include records of any research performed in support of the project.

ANONYMITY  To maintain anonymity in judging, no names of entrants or collaborating parties may appear on any submission materials except where specifically requested on the online entry forms. Do not, however, conceal the identity or location of projects. Failure to adhere to this rule will result in immediate disqualification; ARCHITECT will not adjust any submission to make it comply with this rule.

ENTRY FORMS  Each submission must be registered online ahead of the submission deadline using this website. Additional materials must also be uploaded to the website prior to the submission deadline. PLEASE NOTE: In order to submit your application for consideration, you must proceed through the second payment wall at the end of the submission materials round (step two, listed above).
