General Requirements and Categories

The LSAA 2018 Design Awards are for completed projects since November 2016.

Projects, or significant portions of a structure, may be located around the globe but the Awards are primarily intended for projects that have a substantial local contribution - such as design, fabrication or construction. 

LSAA Members and non-members may enter (different fees apply - $200 per entry for members, $300 per entry for non-financial members).

The Awards are also open to companies or individuals who may not have acted as the main designer, fabricator or installer. However only one entry per project will be considered.

The Awards will considered in the following categories:

Judging is normally done using two independent persons with a third person in case of a deadlock.

Judging is based on the written responses to a number of questions as well as on suitable (reasonably) high resolution coloured digital images. 

The images must include views of the completed structure, some views of detailing and other views taken during construction.

Video and overview drawings in PDF format may help.

Copyright on images used must permit the LSAA to reuse them for promotional reasons.

All entries must be submitted on the forms supplied, by the closing date along with the required entry fee.

For guidance the following structures were entered in the 2016 Design Awards.
