The A+Awards presents a massive opportunity for any firm that believes it has what it takes to stand out and be awarded in this year’s program. This year’s A+Awards is dedicated to showcasing “The Future of Architecture”, honoring truly forward-thinking firms — large and small — that are tackling the biggest issues facing society today. At this crucial time, this forms a moment to be recognized as a leader, on the front lines of architecture’s evolution. As we approach the thrilling conclusion of this year’s program, here are 10 powerful reasons your firm should enter the 8th Annual A+Awards.
1. Global Recognition
A+Awards finalists and winners are recognized as the year’s most influential visionaries by not only our esteemed jury of distinguished luminaries but also Architizer’s 7+ million strong online community of architects and enthusiasts.
2. Feature in the A+Awards Book
All architecture winners are featured in the annual A+Awards compendium entitled “Architizer: The World’s Best Architecture”, published by Phaidon. The book collects the world’s most inspiring architecture, serving as the definitive guide to the year’s best buildings and spaces. Check out the previous edition of the book here.
3. The A+Awards Trophy
All winners receive a custom-engraved A+Awards Trophy. It’s a remarkable showpiece crafted by some of the world’s best awards designers. We’re proud to provide a bespoke trophy that reflects our winners’ outstanding design ethos and achievements.
4. Bragging Rights
Winners will also have unlimited bragging rights, with the ability to flaunt the iconic black and white A+Award winner’s badge across their websites and social media. It’s a stamp of approval that clients will immediately recognize.
5. Double Chance to Win
There are not one but two opportunities to win in each category — the jury and popular vote give each entrant two ways to succeed. The winners of the Popular Choice Awards and Jury Winners are honored equally, and each year, the Finalists receive hundreds of thousands of public votes!
6. Feature on the A+List
All architecture winners are included in the A+List, our annual run-down of Architecture Firms to Watch. The list forms a definitive “who’s who” of design studios to focus on during the coming year. Winners in this year’s A+Awards competition will be featured in next year’s A+List, kicking off 2021 with a bang (and a TON of exposure).
7. Go Viral on Instagram
Every winning project is guaranteed to be featured on Architizer’s Instagram in the coming year. With 1.5 million followers and thousands of likes on every post, expect to go viral.
8. Celebrate With Your Team
Winning an A+Award is a boost to every team member who was involved with a project. It offers a chance to celebrate with your team and recognize the value of teamwork. Just look at Ivan Marín Arquitectura (pictured above) for proof!
9. Establish Your Firm as a Specialist Thought Leader
The winners of specific categories can say they are leaders working in a particular typology, working with a particular material, or working with new technologies. This is the perfect opportunity to establish your firm as a specialist thought leader in emerging architectural trends.
10. Be a Part of the Future of Architecture
As emphasized earlier, the 8th Annual A+Awards is breaking from convention, aiming to highlight work that addresses the most pressing issues facing architecture and design today. Your work has the chance to be recognized as part of a new wave of architectural thought and practice.
So, what have you got to lose?! Get your work the global recognition it deserves by entering the A+Awards this year. Submit before midnight on Friday, May 8th, 2020 to get your firm in the running.
