Architizer’s call for entries for the Third Annual A+Awards, honoring the best architecture, spaces, and products across the globe, will close on December 19. Submissions are open for 93 categories, including 11 new architecture categories and 33 new product categories.
In collaboration with partners The Wall Street Journal, WSJ Magazine, the Webby Awards, Dwell, and Cool Hunting, the A+Awards reach 300+ jurors, 100,000 public voters, and dozens of media outlets across the globe. And unlike most awards programs, which honor just one or a handful of firms and brands, the A+Awards give unprecedented exposure to hundreds of finalists, and 100+ winners.
Last year’s competition saw nearly 3,000 entries from 1,600 firms and brands across 100 countries. The judging process included evaluation by an esteemed panel of jurors —including luminaries from the architecture and design, media, art, technology, and fashion industries like Rockwell Group’s David Rockwell, Pinterest founder Evan Sharp, MoMA’s Paola Antonelli, and New York magazine’s Wendy Goodman — and 200,000 votes cast by the public.
The 2014–2015 competition will see many returning jurors from previous years, and the addition of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Beatrice Galilee, Airbnb founder Joe Gebbia, architect Sou Fujimoto, and Pentagram founder Michael Bierut.
With the 2014-2015 competition, Architizer is offering even more opportunities for recognition, with 11 new architecture & interiors project categories, and an increased focus on the products behind the world’s best projects with 33 new product award categories.
“Product details are such a large of part how architects interact with Architizer, sharing exactly what went into their completed projects with the community,” says Luna Bernfest, Architizer’s Director of Architecture Initiatives. Architizer introduced a small number of product categories in the 2013-2014 program, and this year’s new categories are a response to overwhelming demand from manufacturers.
