World Architecture Awards 10+5+X

Since 2006 and for over 30 Cycles, World Architecture Community organizes the prestigious and acclaimed World Architecture Community Awards ( WA Awards ). The WA Awards highlights and recognizes remarkable projects that have the potential to inspire exciting questions about contemporary architectural discourse.

Given the International nature of World Architecture Community, participants from around the Globe and in particular from regions less covered by general or specialised media, get a chance to share and promote their projects, which would otherwise go unnoticed.

As an architectural organization, World Architecture Community has never separated architecture and interior design from each other in architectural discourse. World Architecture Community has always seen architecture as a holistic approach. However, with evolving technology and the changing conditions of today’s architecture in design oeuvre showed that the profession of interior design has gradually increased and become a separate business and design field.

For this reason, starting from the 33rd Cycle of WA Awards, World Architecture Community is launching the new Interior Design section. So, WAC is happy to announce that all interior designers and interior design offices from around the World are also invited to participate in WAC’s prestigious and acclaimed WA Awards 10+5+X.

If you like to present your work and get the recognition it deserves, we are welcoming you to participate to World Architecture’s WA Awards 10+5+X with your Architecture and/or Interior Design projects.

Categories

This competition has 3 distinct categories as listed below, each with 10+5+X winners:

  • WA Designed Award: Projects that were not built,
  • WA Realised Award: Projects that are actually built ( maximum within the last 10 years ),
  • WA Student Award: Projects designed by Students/Academics.

Realised and Designed categories that are under the Architecture and Interior Design sections, both open for our Associate members and Professional members. Plus, the Student category that exclusively reserved to our Academic members ( without participation fee ), accepts both Architecture and Interior Design projects.

As a participant if you designed a building together with its interior, and if you prefer, you may participate with the same project to both ( Architecture and Interior Design ) Awards by paying their attendance fees. While attending the Interior Design section of WA Awards, we kindly ask you to upload only plans, interior photos and descriptions from your project that are relevant to the section.

Timing

The WA Awards 10+5+X runs typically for 3-4 cycles per year. This gives more breathing room to our jury, while giving participants more time to finalise their projects. Please consult “How to Participate?” page to learn about the current cycle’s submission deadline.

Selection Process

The WA Awards Jury, composed by a mixture of our Honorary Members and earlier WA Awards Winners, selects the first 10. The next 5 will be awarded based on the ratings of fellow community members of World Architecture. In order to rate the projects, a WAC member must have at least 1 uploaded project in his/her page and the project should have been opened to the public by being approved by World Architecture Community

Finally, the “X” will be those projects, which did not make it to the final selection of 10 or 5, but which had that something “special”, that made them worthy of selection and acknowledgement as “X” by the WA Jury.

Participation Fees

WAC Professional Members may participate to the WA Designed Award or WA Realised Award categories, with a single project by cycle, free-of-charge as part of their membership benefits. They may not participate to the WA Student Award.

WAC Academic Members may participate to the WA Student Award category, with a single project by cycle, free-of-charge.

Finally WAC Associate Members may participate to the WA Designed Award or WA Realised Award categories but will be subject to a fee. ( The Professional and Academic members may participate with additional projects in a given cycle, subject to a fee as well ) Participation to the WA Designed Award will require a fee of US $100 per cycle and per project submission, while the WA Realised Award will be subject to US $200 per cycle and per project submission. They may not participate to the WA Student Award.

Winners

Winners of WA Awards 10+5+X are announced approximately 10 days after the final deadline for submission. They will receive a special WA Award Winner Poster and a WA Award Certificate that will be made available to the participants a few weeks after the announcement of the winners.

General Information

WA Awards 10+5+X is a well-established competition that gives its participants and winners a great opportunity to have their projects highlighted and recognised both among their peers and in the marketplace.

Running now for its 33rd Cycle, WA Awards 10+5+X has now a new section specific for Interior Design Projects.

If you like to present your work and get the recognition it deserves, we are welcoming you to participate to World Architecture’s WA Awards 10+5+X with your Architecture and/or Interior Design projects.

Awarding follows a very democratic procedure whereby available WA Jury Members’ and Previous Cycle Winners’ vote for the 10 and willing World Architecture Community members’ rate for the +5. In order to rate the projects, a WAC member must have at least 1 uploaded project in his/her page and the project should have been opened to the public by being approved by World Architecture Community.

In total there are 3 categories: WA Designed Awards, WA Realised Awards and WA Student Awards. This allows for better evaluation for the WA Jury members and a fairer competition among participants and their projects.

Realised and Designed categories that are under the Architecture and Interior Design sections, both open for our Associate members and Professional members. Plus, the Student category accepts both Architecture and Interior Design projects for free.

Participation Eligibility & Pricing

In this table, the green checks reflect the member types who can participate to the different categories free-of-charge ( with 1 project only by cycle ), as part of their membership benefits. As such Professional Members may participate in either Designed or Realised categories and Academic Members may participate in the Student category with a single project, within a specific cycle free-of-charge.

The blue checks match the categories in which members may participate, subject to a fee ( $100 for the Designed category and $200 for the Realised category, per project and per cycle ). As an example, an Associate Member may participate in either Designed or Realised categories after paying the appropriate participation fee. Another example is that while an Academic Member may participate in the Student category free-of-charge ( green check ), he or she may also participate to the Designed category, where the Participation fee will apply.

Finally the red crosses represent the combinations which are not valid. For example, Professional or Associate members may not participate to the WA Awards in the Student category.

Participation fees are as follows and apply to the blue checks in the table above: WA Designed Award is subject to $100 participation fee and WA Realised Award is subject to $200 participation fee. Again, Professional members and Academic members are exempt from the participation fee for a single project in a single cycle as shown with the green checks in the table above.

Furthermore, all architectural and/or interior design projects are welcome, be it a concept / design or a real-life built project ( maximum within the last 10 years ) provided they are ARCHITECTURAL and/or INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECTS – this means landscaping or product design projects will be excluded from the competition and if any fees were paid for participating, there will be no refund.

As a participant, if you designed a building together with its interior, and if you prefer, you may participate with the same project to both ( Architecture and Interior Design ) Awards by paying their attendance fees. While attending the interior Design section of WA Awards, we kindly ask you to upload only plans, interior photos and descriptions from your project that are relevant to the section.

Architects, Interior Designers and Students from all countries are welcome to join the competition; there are no restrictions of any sort except that of being a registered member of the World Architecture Community ( registration to WAC is completely free-of-charge ). Projects must be submitted latest by the deadline specified at the top of this page, to be eligible for the current cycle. Deadline extensions, if applicable, are communicated via e-mail and are updated on this page.

Please note that WA Awards is based on trust and honesty and World Architecture Community may not be responsible for tracking the ownership of projects uploaded to the World Architecture Community website. In case of dispute projects, where the ownership is challenged and justified, will be excluded from the competition and any paid fees, be it participation or professional membership fees WILL NOT BE REFUNDED.

Evaluation Criteria

NOVELTY, ORIGINALITY and CREATIVITY in design that reflect and inspire a commitment to the art of architecture are the major criteria. World Architecture Community tries to bridge the gap between theory and practice; thus the architect’s explanations in the description sections of their project will be critical for recognition as much as the design itself.

Timetable & Calendar

The WA Awards 10+5+X runs typically for 3-4 cycles per year. The first three months as of the announcement of the new cycle, you are welcome to upload and submit your projects for WA Awards. Once the deadline ( regular or extended ) is reached, WA Jury Members and Previous Cycle Winners will evaluate and vote for the projects, to select the first 10 of the 10+5+X. In the meantime, during the entire cycle period, World Architecture Community members may rate the projects that were submitted for WA Awards and at the end of the cycle, once the jury’s work is completed, the 5 most rated projects, with at least 15 individual rates, by World Architecture Community members will form the 5 of the 10+5+X. In order to rate the projects, a WAC member must have at least 1 uploaded project in his/her page and the project should have been opened to the public by being approved by World Architecture Community. WA Awards Winners announcements will be made approximately 10-15 days after the closing of the full cycle.

Participation Procedure

All information ( project description, project facts, drawings, etc. ) submitted in project uploads must be in English. Projects that are not submitted in English will be removed from the competition and there will be no refund. As stated in the Participation Criteria section, participants must be registered members of World Architecture Community to be able to upload and submit their projects for WA Awards. If they are registered members, participants can follow the following steps to participate to the WA Awards competition:

  1. First, please check if you are signed in to the World Architecture Community portal.
  2. If the project you want to participate with is already uploaded to WAC, please skip 3 through 8 and go straight to 9 below.
  3. Once signed in, you will upload your project through the “Add a Project” page.
  4. Please fill-in the information as completely as possible, to increase your chances of winning a WA Award.
  5. Please note that you must fill the “Project Type” field correctly as it will determine the category in which your project will be submitted to the WA Awards i.e. Designed, Realised and Student. Although by default, for Academic Members, this value should be Student, Academic members who wish to participate to the WA Designed Award competition category ( subject to a fee ), may choose Designed instead of Student. Associate or Professional members may not choose Student as Project Type.
  6. After filling the different fields of the Upload Projects form, you will move on to upload the visuals for your project at the bottom of the Upload Your Projects page. Please note that the quality of the visuals ( photos, renderings, plans, etc. ) and the completeness of the description of your project will be crucial to get the WA Jury’s and World Architecture Community members attention, and therefore for your chances to win an award. Important: If any participant uploads non-category images or information related to the relevant category, the project will not be evaluated even during the competition or after rating/voting process. For example, any participant cannot present a project that she/he has submitted to the “Realised” category with rendering images, construction photos or any non-related materials, or totally opposite, any participant can not present a project in the “Designed” category with completed images. If WAC Editors detect the inaccurate and incomplete presentation of any project in the competition, they have the right to remove the project from the competition and there will be no refund.
  7. With the recent re-design of the World Architecture Community portal, we allow for higher resolution photos and larger file sizes for a better visual experience on the project pages. For your visuals, we recommend:
    • Landscape ( or horizontal ) rather than portrait ( or vertical ) visuals.
    • Minimum of 1280px ( pixels ) width – lower width visuals will be rejected when you try to upload your visuals; ideal width is around 1280px or higher.
    • Resolution of your visuals must be between 72-300px/inch.
    • Both JPEG and PNG formats are supported. We do not accept BMP or GIF formats for their inefficient size vs quality ratio.
    • Max. 5Mb file size per visual – larger ones will be rejected.
  8. Once your project information is complete and the visuals are uploaded, please make sure to click CREATE/UPDATE YOUR PROJECT button to save your project.
  9. After your successful upload, you will be redirected to the My Projects page. On this page, you will locate the project you want to submit to the WA Awards and click the “Participate to WA Awards” button to submit your project to the WA Awards.
  10. VERY IMPORTANT: For all participants, regardless of their membership or the category in which they submit their project to the WA Awards, once they confirm their submission to the WA Awards, the project can no longer be retracted or edited until the WA Awards Cycle is complete – it will remain locked. We therefore recommend you make sure your project information and visuals are complete before submitting as there will be no turning back after the submission is completed.
  11. Once you click Participate Now, you will be presented with a summary of your submission. Please double check the name of your project as well as the category in which it will be submitted to the WA Awards. Once you make sure you are participating with the right project in the right category, please check the checkbox to confirm you’ve read and agree to the WA User Agreement. If WAC Editors see your project as incomplete with project description and all project facts, they have the right to remove the project from the competition and there will be no refund.

  12. If you are a Professional member participant, you are allowed to submit one Designed OR Realised project by cycle free-of-charge, as part of your membership benefits.
  13. If you are an Academic member participant, you are allowed to submit one Student project by cycle free-of-charge, as part of your membership benefits.
  14. If you are an Associate member participant, your participation to the WA Awards is subject to the participation fee described in the “General Information” section at the top of this page. You will have an extra step in the process whereby you will be re-directed to the payment options pop-up where you will complete your invoice information and then will be taken to the secure Credit Card payment page. Once your payment is complete, you will be presented with your Payment Receipt. This receipt will be sent to your e-mail address on record as well. IMPORTANT: If you do not see and/or receive your Payment Receipt, something might have gone wrong. Please contact World Architecture Community, if so is the case.
  15. If you wish to participate with more than one project, you will repeat this process. If you are a Professional or Academic member and wish to submit more than the one project, you may do so, subject to a fee as described in the “General Information” section at the top of this page. On your second submission, you will be guided to the secure Credit Card payment page to complete your payment. This is applicable for each additional single project within a cycle.

Best of luck on your submission( s ) and thank you for your participation.
