2015 AIA Georgia Honor and Design Awards

A Spirited Celebration of Georgia Architects

One week from today, Friday, March 6 is the deadline for both Design Award submissions and Honor Award nominations.  

During our Spirited Celebration on April 11, we will present the following awards:

AIA Georgia Architecture Firm Award

Emerging Professional Award

Bernard B. Rothschild Award

Nominations can be submitted here.  Please take the time to nominate someone!

Design Award submissions can be entered here.  This year the process for submitting your design award is different. Instead of a two step process, entry fees and project submissions are completed at the same time.  You can view the Call for Entries here.*  Entry fees have also been reduced to $75.00 making it more affordable to enter a project into multiple categories**.  The entry categories for this year are:

  • Residential (suggested size of 10,000 sq. ft or less)
  • Built Architecture, Small (under 10,000 sq. ft.)
  • Built Architecture, Large (over 10,000 sq. ft.)
  • Unbuilt (commissioned or conceptual projects not yet built)
  • Renovation
  • Visualization (physical model, computer or hand rendering, computer model, or documentation tool/sheet) 
  • Student Project***

* If discrepancies exist between online submission form and call for entry document, follow directions on the online form.
**Entry fee must be paid per each category (i.e. one project submitted for residential + renovation would be $150.00)
**Students are encouraged to submit their work in the Student Project category which recognizes design excellence in student work, including research, installations, conceptual projects, or competitions.
