Entries for 2023 are now open. Entry guidelines are available for download here.
There are three simple steps involved in submitting your entries.
1. Create your account
To commence your submission, you must first create your account. Refer to MY ENTRIES on the awards site aaunbuilt.com.au. Once you have commenced a submission, you can log in and out at any time without losing your data, but we do recommend that you first complete the written responses in a Word document before cutting and pasting into the online entry form.
2. Create entry submission
Before beginning your entry submission, read the Conditions section. Submitting an entry means that you have read and agreed to all the conditions.
You will be prompted to upload the following materials: drawing sheets, images, plans, sections, elevations, words and video links.
Jurors will only see the drawing sheets and any video content supplied. To maintain anonymity during judging, no design practice names may appear on these elements.
Images, plans, sections, elevations and supporting words will only be used if the project is published but must be supplied on submission.
- DRAWING SHEETS (MANDATORY)
Submit high resolution PDFs of up to two A2 drawing sheets (landscape orientation) explaining the proposal in full.
- IMAGES (MANDATORY)
6 to 15 high resolution image files used to compile the drawing sheets. Use the highest quality JPG setting available. Submit JPG images that are at least 3500 pixels wide with a file size no larger than 20 MB. Images of at least 4500 pixels wider are preferred and will enable a higher-quality print coverage. If your images are coming in above the 20 MB size limit, try re-saving them in Photoshop and reducing the JPEG compression level to 8.
- PDFS OF PLANS, SECTIONS AND/OR ELEVATIONS (MANDATORY)
Vector-based PDFS used to compile the drawing sheets, with scales and north points noted, where relevant.
- WORDS (MANDATORY)
Written description of no more than 500 words.
- VIDEO (OPTIONAL)
You may submit a brief video. If you choose to provide this information, you will be required to provide a URL to view video content that has been uploaded to Vimeo or YouTube.
3. Entry submission and payment
Once you have completed steps 1 and 2 above, you may pay for and submit your project.
The entry fee is $125.
Each submission and payment is confirmed by the issuing of a tax receipt, which is sent to your email address. Retain a copy for taxation purposes. Visa, Mastercard and Amex are accepted.
