    The State Architecture Awards are annual high-profile events held in each Chapter across Australia. The Awards recognise Institute members across Australia and the broader architectural profession, developing greater public awareness and understanding of the importance of architecture to the wider public, encouraging architects to strive for excellence.


    The State Awards program evokes strong interest and the formal awards nights provide an opportunity for the local architecture community to come together and celebrate success. Project entries are submitted by members for consideration, are judged by a jury of experts and corporate partners, with the winners being announced at the State Awards.
