This Awards Program Is Different
The Architizer A+Awards is the largest awards program focused on promoting and celebrating the year’s best architecture and products. Its mission is to nurture the appreciation of meaningful architecture in the world and champion its potential for a positive impact on everyday life. Imagine your best work in front of a global audience of 400+ million.
Show Your Work to the People That Matter
The A+Awards live at Architizer.com, the largest online community of architects in the world with 3+ million monthly views. But the awards are bigger than just the architectural community. Entries are judged by a panel of more than 400 distinguished luminaries and thought leaders from fields as diverse as fashion, publishing, product design, real estate development and tech.
Finalists and winners are recognized as the year’s most influential visionaries — and the buzz is huge.
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 design enthusiasts from around the globe vote for their favorites during a highly publicized campaign. The winners of the A+ Popular Choice Awards are honored alongside a Jury Winner. In 2016, we received over 400,000 public votes.
Gala Event in New York
Winners, jurors and VIPs all gather at a red carpet gala that kicks off the week-long NYCxDesign event in New York City. The celebration is the architectural industry’s ultimate opportunity to mingle with celebrities, notable personalities and new visionaries.
We want to give our winners a truly remarkable showpiece. That’s why we asked Brooklyn-based firm Snarkitecture to create a bespoke design for the Architizer A+Awards trophy. “The objects and installations created by Snarkitecture … are almost always perplexing, purposely challenging people’s expectations.”- The New York Times
