World Architecture Community has opened the WA Awards 10+5+X 37th Cycle to accept innovative projects from all around to be judged by a panel of star jury, including world-renowned architects, high-profiled academics and top design leaders, as well as WA Awards' previous winners and World Architecture Community Members.

All architects, interior designers, architecture and interior design students can send their entries until March 22, 2021 (23:59 GMT) by registering to WAC from here first. Registrations are free to WAC and participants need to upload their works to their WAC pages first and they can send their entries whenever they want before the deadline.

WA Awards 10+5+X is also open to Interior Designers/Offices and Interior Design Students!

WA Awards includes over 1,600 winning projects since it was established. World Architecture Community recently added a new section for the WA Awards for Interior Designers and/or Interior Design Offices, calling them to submit their entries to get globally recognized.

Since 2006 and for over 30 Cycles, World Architecture Community organises the prestigious and acclaimed WA Awards 10+5+X. The aim of the WA Community Awards is to highlight and recognise remarkable projects that might otherwise remain unnoticed by the international public, yet have the potential to inspire exciting questions about contemporary architectural discourse.

Categories


WA Awards is accepting projects for architects, interior designers and students under 2 major sections: Architecture and Interior Design. Then projects should be sent under these 3 sub-categories: Realised, Designed and Student. All participants should send their projects that meet these conditions:

In addition, these easy instructions will help participants to send their projects in 4 (+1) Easy Steps.
Besides this, students can follow these steps to validate their accounts and send their projects in easiest way.

Evaluation Criteria

WA Awards' evaluation criteria is based on 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 and member’s discussions on submissions will be critical for recognition as much as the design itself.

Timetable & Calendar

The timetable for our 3-4 cycles per year is identical between cycles. The first three months as of the announcement of the new cycle, you are welcome to upload and submit your projects for WA Awards consideration.

Selection Process

The fourth month of the cycle will be for the WA Jury to evaluate and vote (the first 10 of the 10+5+X). In the meantime, during the entire 4 months, World Architecture Community members may rate the projects that were submitted for WA Awards consideration and at the end of the cycle, once the 4 months are passed, the 5 most rated projects by World Architecture Community members would form the second 5 of the 10+5+X. Within the same time, the WA Jury may also chose some projects as the "X" part 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.

Entry Fees

Jury
