Be seen by 1,000,000 A|N readers and Members of the A/E/C Design Community! Our Fifth Annual Best Of Design Awards is a unique project-based awards program that showcases great buildings and building elements.
Entrants are invited to submit completed works in 42 categories that reflect A|N’s editorial coverage, as well as the interests and obsessions of our readers. This year, we have two landscape categories, for public and private designs.
The BoD jury will judge entries based on several criteria: strength of the presentation, evidence of innovation, creative use of new technology, sustainability, and, most importantly, good design.
Winners and honorable mentions will be published in a special Design Annual created for Best Of Design. It will be mailed out in December 2017 and distributed at industry events and conferences throughout 2018. Winning projects will also be featured on our website, where they will reach national and international audiences, and will be promoted via social media. Winners will also receive a limited edition print from Archigram produced especially for A|N.
