Architizer A+ Awards [via Architizer.com]

The Architizer A+ Awards break architecture out of the echo chamber to celebrate the world’s best structures, spaces and the minds behind them.

Film has the Oscars, the internet has the Webbys, advertising has the Clios. Don’t wait until you win a Pritzker to have your work celebrated by an award that matters. Enter work from the last three years to have it considered by a jury of 200 architects, thought leaders and the people who actually hire architects.

You can’t win if you don’t enter.

Core 77 Welcomes New Design 2012 Submissions

We’ve Arrived!

Welcome to the inaugural Core77 Design Awards! For the past 16 years we’ve been celebrating outstanding design and designers across a wide array of disciplines. Now we’re proud to provide a global platform that honors the very brightest, boldest and most impactful work on an annual basis. We hope to set new standards for design awards by leveraging online scale, increasing transparency and decreasing plane fuel. We’re opening the field to 15 categories, recognizing the emerging disciplines of Design for Social Impact, Design Education Initiatives, DIY and our intriguing “Never Saw the Light of Day.” The submission process is online and allows designers the opportunity to show off their pitching skills by uploading a 2-minute-30-second video as part of their entry (it’s optional but advisable).

Our jury system also gives the judging process a new twist. Rather than put each jury member on a plane and fly them to one location, we have selected a head judge for each of the categories (we call them “Jury Captains”). Based in different cities around the world, each captain will select four local experts (within train, bike or jogging distance) to join them in the evaluation process as a unified jury team. Not only that, these teams of jurors will reveal their winning choices via live web broadcasts. With jury teams in time zones as diverse as London, Tokyo, Sydney and Ahmenabad, we’re looking forward to announcement parties at all hours of the day and night.
