The A+Awards

Call For Entry
Now in its third year, The Architizer A+Awards are the definitive global architectural award program with 90+ categories and over 300 judges. It’s your opportunity to be recognized amongst the best in the profession.


Show Your Work To The People That Matter
Over the last two years, with our partners the WSJ. Magazine and The Webbys — we created the biggest award program for architecture in the world. Our global audience exceeded 100M viewers and included over 200,000K public votes. Here’s how we do it:


A+ Popular Choice Awards Dominate the Social Web
The Architizer A+Awards deliver unprecedented exposure for our finalists and winners. Our reputable judges nominate five finalists within each award category. These finalists are then presented online where professionals and design enthusiasts around the globe vote for their favorites during a highly publicized campaign. The winners of the A+ Popular Choice Awards are honored alongside projects chosen by our jury. Last year we had over 200,000 votes cast!
"A chance to make your voice heard — vote for your favorite architecture in the @Architizer A+ Popular Choice Award."- Olafur Eliasson, Artist and Jury Member



Gala Event In New York
Our May event in New York City is the signature architectural event during the city’s design week, NYCxDesign and right before the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF). There are no panel discussions and no lectures! There is a red carpet and celebrities from architecture, design and fashion. At the event we honor our award recipients and also announce the Special Achievement Awards for the year. All winners will be invited to join a crowd of luminaries from architecture, development, government, and other fields at this May 2015 soiree. Check out the 2014 A+Awards Gala Below:

The Trophy
We want to give our winners a truly remarkable showpiece. That’s why we asked the firm Snarkitecture to collaborate with the team behind the MTV and Emmy awards to create the Architizer A+Awards trophy.


"The objects and installations created by Snarkitecture... are almost always perplexing, purposely challenging people's expectations."- NYTimes April 26, 2012


You Can't Win If You Don't Enter
A collection of 300 judges choose five (5) finalists and one (1) winner in each category. The web community also selects a Popular Choice winner in each category. Opportunities abound, but you can’t win if you don’t enter!
