Australian Institute of Architects Awards NSW Chapter


Welcome to the Australian Institute of Architects Awards for the New South Wales chapter. The Awards are an opportunity for public and peer recognition of your work and provide the Institute with a valuable mechanism to promote architects and architecture in 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.

2015 NSW Awards

THE 2015 AWARDS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR SUBMISSIONS.

Entrants will present to the Awards juries on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 March.

All presentations will be held at Tusculum, 3 Manning Street, Potts Point.

How to apply

Awards submissions are made using an online entry system, and supplemented with the additional entry materials of a digital presentation and exhibition board, which are both used as part of the presentation to jury and for later public display. The online entry should be completed and submitted, and both presentation items delivered to the NSW Chapter office on or before Tuesday 3 March.
