Read the entry information carefully to ensure that you have entered your project/s into the most appropriate category. Some projects may be suitable for entry into more than one category.
We recommend that you first draft your written responses in a Word document before copying into the submission form.
The written submissions are very important and are read carefully by the jurors. Ensure that:
Use a professional photographer to document your projects. The early stages of judging are based on visual criteria, so give your project the best possible chance of getting through the judging processes by submitting high quality images.
Use images that best suit the category you have chosen to enter. Select images that illustrate what you have said about your project in the written statement.
Provide images that are indicative of the project, allowing jurors to form an accurate sense of the entirety of the space. Images that focus on small details (i.e. a single fixture or artwork) tend to be of limited use to the jury.
It is important to provide drawings (site plan, floor plans, sections, elevations etc.) that allow the jurors to make further sense of the images you provide.
If entering into the Sustainability category, please ensure you include sections, diagrams and other sketches that explain how the project responds to environmental concerns.
If entering the category for House in a Heritage Context you will be asked to upload a PDF (maximum of 10 MB) of the supporting justification provided as part of any development application for a heritage approval (e.g. a Heritage Impact Statement or similar)". No other information will be required.
If entering the category for Emerging Architecture Practice, you will be asked to upload a PDF (maximum of 10 MB) of the practice CV, that includes:
Note that images that don’t conform to the specified file format and size will be rejected.
