Introduction
The aim of the Aberdeen Society of Architects Awards is to raise the public profile of good quality architecture, creating a showcase for the profession, recognising quality design; whilst demonstrating architects skills and the contribution of projects to the built environment.

Eligibility
All entries must have been designed by an RIAS registered Chartered Member or RIAS Chartered Practice. Entries can be submitted by the architects, users or client/commissioning organisation. All types of architectural projects are eligible, including new-build residential, commercial, industrial, public realm, regeneration, conservation, conversion, interiors and extensions. Projects must have been completed between 1st January 2014 & 9th December 2016. Projects must either be located within the Aberdeen Chapter area (incorporating Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray (East) Council areas), or where projects are out-with this area, must have been completed by an RIAS Chartered Member or RIAS Chartered Practice located within the ASA Chapter Area. Closing Date for entries is Friday 9th December 2016.

• five plans or other drawings in A3 PDF format
• a description of the project, including how it has matched the brief (maximum 500 words)
• five high-resolution digital photos (individual images –not montages) in JPEG format

Images can either be supplied on CD or via an online file-transfer service, e.g. Dropbox or WeTransfer.

Judging
A panel of judges will be looking for projects to show innovation and design excellence, irrespective of size or type, and whether new or adapted. As the initial shortlisting process is entirely based on assessment of the photos, drawings and text provided. It is intended that all shortlisted projects will be visited by the panel of judges. The judges’ decision will be final.

Judges will be encouraged to award winners in the following categories: Public Buildings; Commercial Buildings; Residential Buildings; Conservation; Regeneration; and the Innovative use of Timber. Additional categories may be introduced depending on entries. All entries will be considered for the ASA ‘Project of the Year Award’ which is awarded to the entry judged the best overall.

The architect of each award winning project will be awarded certificates. Awards winners and commendations will be informed in advance. Awards will be presented at the annual ASA Dinner, and will be published on social media including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.  Winners unable to attend will be able to collect their awards or have them posted.

Completed entry forms and all other entry information (or web transfer links) should be emailed to social@aberdeenarchitects.org

Good luck to all.
