Housekeeping / FAQs:

How do I watch the awards presentation?
This year’s announcement will be broadcast via Facebook Live. Visit the Houses magazine Facebook page on the evening of 31 July and watch live as we announce this year’s winners.

Do I need to register or pay?
Just come along, the party’s on us!

I don’t have a Facebook account. How can I watch?
You don’t need a Facebook account. Just head to our Facebook page at 6.00 pm AEST on 31 July and you’ll be able to watch.

How long will the live stream go for?
We’ll be keeping it short and sweet so don’t be fashionably late! We’re aiming for 45 minutes, but as this is a live broadcast anything could happen.

How do I get involved on social media?
•    Make sure you’re following Houses magazine on Facebook and Instagram to receive updates and information on the announcement event.
•    Post pictures of your celebrations on Instagram on the evening. Tag @housesmagazine and use #HousesAwards2020 so we can share them with our community.

What do I do if I’m shortlisted?
Have your phone ready, as we’ll be calling you live on the night if you’re a winner.

Why an online presentation?
We’ve had to make some changes to the way we do things because of COVID-19, and while some limitations are changing, it’s important to us that our friends, peers and colleagues are safe as houses so this year we’re going digital.

What’s the best way to watch the Facebook Live awards announcement?
We suggest watching on your laptop or desktop and not on your phone – not only so you can have your hands free to toast the winners, but also so that you can see the images of the projects in a larger format.

Is there an after party?
While there’s no official event to kick on to this year, we encourage you to keep the party rolling and don’t forget to send us photos of how you’re celebrating!
