Call for Entries: AZ AWARDS 2016

Enter the 2016 AZ AWARDS, our sixth annual international competition honouring the best work in architecture and design produced over the past year.

AZURE welcomes architects, landscape architects, designers, students, clients and manufacturers to submit to the 6th annual AZ AWARDS competition and get their exceptional work the recognition it deserves.

This is an opportunity to present completed work that stands out for innovative design, environmental or social benefit, or for being simply delightful. To give your projects their proper due, we’ve assembled a panel of international experts in the areas of product design, architecture, landscape architecture and interiors to evaluate all entries. (Keep an eye out for the jury announcement soon!)

So put your best work forward for a chance to receive an internationally recognized award. The jury’s top selections will be published in AZURE’s Annual AZ AWARDS Issue, on newsstands in June 2016. Winners and finalists benefit from the exposure they receive through our magazine and its online channels, as well as through the substantial reach of our media partners. Besides elevating your own profile, when you step into the spotlight at the AZ AWARDS Gala in Toronto in June, you’ll also raise public awareness for your firm and your clients.

The AZ AWARDS is open to architects, landscape architects and architectural firms; designers and design firms from all disciplines; as well as students, manufacturers and clients for work completed by December 31, 2015.
