2021 Design Awards Call For Entries

March 15, 2021 - May 1, 2021

2021 Design Awards, ‘Call for Entries’

To recognize excellence in architecture, AlA New Orleans would like to announce that the 2021 Design Awards Call for Entries is OPEN! The Design Awards have an overall mission to increase awareness of outstanding architecture and to honor the architects, clients, contractors, and consultants who work together to improve the built environment.

This year marks our third annual Industry Awards. Outstanding architecture would not be possible without the collaboration of owners, architects, contractors, engineers, consultants, manufacturers and so many others. We created the Industry Awards to recognize the significant contributions of our partners. Are you an AIA New Orleans member who has worked with an extraordinary partner this year? Encourage them to apply! 

Lastly, we are excited that this year marks our second annual Emerging Professional Awards to recognize Associate AIA members and Young Architects who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and made significant contributions to the profession.

This year, the submission process is completely digital. To submit a project, you must submit online via the AIA Submittable portal. You will be prompted to fill out information on each project submitted and make payment for the total amount of entries.

Packets fully before submitting.

We have also included a How-To Guide detailing the online submission process via Submittable.
