I applied for the 2021 Residential Architect Awards and/or the 68th Progressive Architecture Awards (P/A). Can I use the same login?
Yes! Please use the same email you used for your last application and click the “forgot password” button if you can’t remember your password. If the person who applied for the last program is no longer with the company, please create a new account.
Will I get emails confirming my registration and submission?
Yes. Please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your safe senders list. If you have not received those emails, please check your spam/junk folder.
My company is outside of the US. Can I submit a project for the awards?
Yes! Companies outside the US, or companies who completed international projects, are eligible for P/A.
How many projects can I enter for the awards?
You can enter as many projects as you want! Just remember you will need to pay a registration fee for each.
Do I have to mail any physical materials?
No. Please upload all materials to paawards.com.
Is my application fee per-project?
Yes. If you decide to submit two projects, for example, you will pay the entry fee twice.
What does each section of my dashboard mean?
- In Progress - Application(s) you are currently working on
- In Cart - Application(s) that you need to pay for in order to submit
- Complete - Finalized and submitted application(s)
- Needs Attention - Application(s) you have not yet started
- Expired - Application(s) that were not submitted before the submission deadline. Expired applications will not be considered for an award
The above categories will appear only if you have an application in that category. For example, if you do not have any expired applications, the EXPIRED section will not appear on your dashboard.
Why do I have two separate entries in my account for the same project?
The registration/pay first round and submission materials sections will each appear individually on your dashboard along with that step’s status and submission date. If you have completed both the registration and submission materials sections of your application, the COMPLETE section of your dashboard will look like this:
How can I tell if I have fully submitted my application?
The application will show up in the COMPLETE section of your dashboard (see above for example).
I was registering my project, but the system asked me to pay my fee before I could upload images. Where do I upload images?
You must register and pay your entry fee before you can upload your project images and description. Once you pay your fee, you will be taken to the rest of your application.
Can I register and pay for my entry fee by the early deadline of December 15, 2021, but upload my materials after that date?
Yes, but please know that you must submit all materials by the deadline of Jan. 7, 2022.
My project is in the middle of construction. Is it eligible for the P/A Awards?
As long as your project is completed after February 1, 2022, it is eligible.
How long should my project narrative be?
Though there is no set minimum or maximum, we request that your narrative be fewer than 300 words.
Can I submit more than one image of the project in the same file?
No. Please do not combine more than one image in the same JPG file; upload single images only. Our judges want to be able to see your images in as much detail as possible
What format should my images be?
All images must be in JPG format.
Can I have a refund on my submission(s)?
We’re sorry, but no. No refunds will be issued. Please be sure to review all eligibility guidelines before submitting a project. If you still aren’t sure whether you qualify, please email email@example.com.
My question isn’t here. Whom should I contact?
Please email our staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
