At the November 2018 National Council meeting, some changes were made to the policy that come into effect for the 2019 Awards Program.

Key changes for ACT entrants include: 

  • Self-nominations are now required for both Sustainable Architecture and COLORBOND® Steel for Architecture categories
  • ACT Boundary – Only entries in the following postcodes will be considered in the ACT Architecture Awards: 2000-2607, 2609, 2611-2612, 2614-2621, 2623, 2900, 2902- 2906, 2911-2914 and Jervis Bay Territory. Please refer to attached map. Projects outside of these postcodes must be entered into the NSW Architecture Awards.
  • Small Projects Category: Projects in this category will be those considered to be “small” in terms of area or budget. Projects are recognised that have been constrained by space or cost restrictions, but have achieved a level of invention, creativity and craftsmanship despite these constraints. This category can accommodate projects typically projects in the public realm, which may be over-looked against larger scale projects in other categories or may be transient or experimental in nature, such as exhibition design, set design, playgrounds, architectural sculptures, or installations that may or may not be able to be visited by the Jury. Projects of all functional types may be considered. Exclusions: Residential projects are not eligible for this category. Projects concurrently entered into any other category are not eligible for this category.
