The Australian Institute of Architects Awards program offers an opportunity for public and peer recognition of the innovative work of NSW architects. The program also provides the Institute with a valuable mechanism to promote architects and architecture within NSW, across Australia and internationally.
By entering into the NSW Architecture Awards and therefore the National Architecture Awards program, you give yourself, your firm and your staff the opportunity to be judged for the work you are proud of, the issues you stand for and to show your peers what you have been working on. It can be an important contributor to your membership in the architectural community, and also offer milestones in your career – whether as an emerging architect, small firm or as a member of a larger project team.
Details of the awards process and how to apply are detailed on this website year-round. If you have any questions relating to the NSW Awards please contact the NSW Awards Manager or call 0292464012.
