Did you submit to the 2017 Civic Design Awards? If so, we've made it easier than ever to submit to the Honor Awards too! This year, the submittal package file requirements are the same. See the Submittal Requirements section for more information.

Why Submit?

  • Publicize your work—your project will be part of a program experienced by hundreds of architecturally-minded attendees from the design industry and beyond.

  • Get your work out there—all submitted projects are featured on the AIA Seattle Online Gallery, a perfect place for AIA Seattle to direct design-hungry writers. National editors and writers interested in architecture and the built environment use the Honor Awards website as a resource.

  • Put your creativity to work twice—if you've got a great project that never made it out of the design phase, don't let it go to waste, submit it in the Conceptual category

  • Refine your pitch— submitting your project is a great way to hone how you communicate about your work. Those who have submitted in the past say that the process helped them speak about their work to clients and to fellow team members in a more coherent and persuasive way.

  • Get in front of distinguished colleagues—have your work reviewed by prominent architects like David Adjaye, David Lewis, and Catie Newell.

  • Build respect from peers and clients—recognition from a panel of carefully chosen jurors adds to your firm's credibility. The Awards themselves exhibit the breadth and depth of architectural talent here in Washington. This is a great way to showcase to the greater community our strength as a design community.

  • Build buzz about your firm—use your firm's recognition to leverage coverage of you and your projects in magazines and journals that are seen by peers and potential clients throughout the Northwest.
