The Seattle AIA Honor Awards represent the best of BUILT and CONCEPTUAL work for projects located in the State of Washington or by Washington-based architects. 

Registered architects practicing in Washington are eligible regardless of the project’s location.  Out of state architects and their offices are also eligible provided that their submitted projects are located within the State of Washington.   

BUILT projects must have been completed after November 2012. CONCEPTUAL projects must have been initiated after November 2012.  

For BUILT submissions, professional license is required by at least one member of the design team
. For CONCEPTUAL submissions, professional license is not required. 

If the design team includes more than one office of practice, any member of the project team may submit the joint project. All members of the design team must be acknowledged in the entry, and the non-submitting office(s) must be made aware of the submission.  

Firms are encouraged to re-enter projects previously submitted if they did not win an award. Projects that have received an AIA Seattle award are not eligible for another award. 

Any project that credits a juror or a juror’s firm as architect, associate architect, consultant, or client is ineligible and will be disqualified if submitted.
