2018 Design Awards

There are some important changes to the program this year:

1.  AIANH and the Environmental Guild are pleased to introduce a new award, Excellence in Sustainability.  The purpose of this award is to recognize innovative strategies which advance sustainability in the built environment. Low or no energy demand, sustainable materials, healthy indoor air quality and advocacy should be at the forefront of the project which also exemplifies excellent architectural design.  There are two possible Honor Awards for Excellence in Sustainability, one each in the categories of: New Construction and Deep Energy Retrofit.

2.  AIANH is offering a stand-alone category for the Rick & Duffy Monahon Award for Design Excellence in Architectural Restoration and Preservation.  If you have a project that fits the criteria for this award, submit it directly to this category.

3.  AIANH will receive awards submissions with Submittable, a much streamlined, one-stop, online software product.  All parts of project submissions and fees will be handled through Submittable.

Please note a few key procedures: 

  • You will create an account in Submittable to manage your project submission(s).
  • You can continue to make changes to your project submissions in your account until you actually submit them to AIANH.  After this time, you cannot make changes to your projects.
  • You must pay your submission fees through Submittable in order to submit your project.  If you have not paid your fees, AIANH will not be able to see or have record of your project.
  • Presentation boards are mandatory for all projects. It is required to submit the digital file for presentation boards through Submittable. AIANH will handle production of all boards.
  • It is recommended to use Chrome or Firefox browsers for submissions made through Submittable. 
  • If you encounter technical difficulty with your awards submission, please contact: Submittable Tech Support at: (855) 467-8264, ext. 2 or support@submittable.com.  Non-technical questions about awards can be addressed to:  Bonnie Kastel, bkastel@aianh.org.
