The 2024 A+Product Awards is open for submissions, with the Extended Entry Deadline fast approaching on Friday, February 23rd.

Home to the world’s largest community of architects online, Architizer is a natural home for a program designed to celebrate innovative building products — those elements and objects that help make new buildings and interior spaces the best they can be for modern society. The pioneering brands behind these products are essential to the success of architects around the globe, helping them to achieve their creative vision while providing long-lasting quality for end users.

If you’re part of a company that is still deciding whether the A+Product Awards is right for you, here are seven ways that the program can help you gain momentum and bring you the recognition your brand deserves:

1. Supercharge your brand in the digital era.

The building product industry has suffered through challenging times in recent history, with the COVID–19 pandemic and a turbulent economy meddling with marketing budgets worldwide. While expensive physical events are making a comeback, the most reliable route to year-round visibility comes via leading digital initiatives on architectural media platforms. The A+Product Awards offers a powerful avenue to ensure your brand stays top of mind with specifying architects and designers throughout the next 12 months — and will stand you in excellent stead for when you next meet them in person.

2. Have your products seen by leading specifiers around the world.

Each and every product and material entered in the program will be reviewed by our stellar jury of industry experts, comprising dozens of renowned architects and designers that truly understand what it takes to create great buildings and spaces. These thought leaders influence architects and designers worldwide, so winning is a huge validation of your product’s quality.

3. Maintain the edge over your competitors.

Each category attracts the very best brands globally, each vying to secure their place in front of Architizer’s thriving professional community. Your biggest competitors are certain to enter — submit your latest products to ensure your brand maintains its global reputation. The A+Product Awards also provides a powerful opportunity for new and emerging brands to establish themselves among the world’s top names.

4. Connect with clients and collaborators around the world.

As well as those top architects on the jury, the A+Product Awards presents a powerful opportunity for you to showcase your products to prospective clients and collaborators around the world. Speaking events, networking opportunities and editorial spotlights are made available to select winning brands, extending the value of your A+Product Award long into the future.

5. Get published globally.

Featuring every A+Product Award winner, the new A+Products List will showcase the year’s hottest brands in the architectural products, materials, lighting and furniture. With special featured sections highlighting top innovators and the year’s most groundbreaking products, the A+Products List — a perfect companion to Architizer’s popular A+List for the world’s top architecture firms — will be a go-to resource for thousands of designers around the world.

6. Gain international exposure.

With the largest online architecture community on the planet, the A+Product Awards deliver unprecedented exposure for Winners. Winning brands will be recognized as an industry leader by Architizer’s 7+ million online audience and secure a marketing package for their product worth more than $20,000, including free press release distribution to media outlets worldwide via our official partner v2com newswire.

7. Win a prestigious A+Awards trophy.

Our winners deserve a truly remarkable showpiece. That’s why we’ve worked closely with some of the world’s best awards designers to create a bespoke trophy that reflects our winners’ outstanding design ethos and achievements. Each A+Awards trophy is individually engraved with the winning brand’s name, product and category, perfect for display at industry trade shows and in product showrooms. It makes for a fantastic marketing tool — just make sure you share your trophy selfie with us this year, just like Pure + Freeform did (see above)!
