2016 Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence open for submissions

For over 40 years, Canadian Architect has sponsored an annual national awards program, the only national awards that recognize projects in the design stage. The Awards of Excellence are open to all architects registered in Canada and to Canadian architectural graduates for buildings designed in Canada and abroad. Foreign architects are permitted to submit, provided they have partnered with a Canadian-registered architect.

Each year, submissions are due in September, judging takes place in October and the winning schemes are published in a special issue every December.

This year’s early-bird deadline is Friday, September 2, 2016 at 11:59PM (PST).

The regular deadline for submissions is Friday, September 23, 2016 at 11:59PM (PST).

Projects must be in the design stage, scheduled for construction or under construction but not substantially complete by September 23, 2016. All projects must be commissioned by a client with the intention to build the submitted proposal. All building types and concisely presented urban design schemes are eligible. Awards are given for architectural design excellence. Jurors will consider the project’s physical organization and form, response to context, innovation, and demonstration of exemplary environmental or social awareness.
