Deadlines & Fees

Architects, builders, contractors, developers, engineers, business owners are encouraged to submit work that is in prototype or complete*. Winners are determined by one entry, and not an entire body of work, so careful selection should be observed.
2021 Entry Period Early Bird
(Oct 15 - Dec 17, 2020)
(Dec 18, 2020 - Jan 21, 2021)
(Jan 22 - Feb 25, 2021)
PROFESSIONAL 1st ENTRY $169 $179 $199
ADDITIONAL ENTRY $169 $179 $199

* You may submit an entry into multiple categories at the same time. The first Category will be charged as per the original submission fee. Additional categories (2 or more) will be charged as such.

Rather than increase the fee for each entry, fees are only charged in order to cover administrative costs like printing, mailing and data organization. For this reason, each participant is charged a flat $30 administration fee. When all participants pay the same low fee, those submitting more than one entry will actually pay less than if fees were on a sliding scale.

Work submitted must have been created within the last 5 years.
