The purpose of the National Architecture Awards is to encourage and acknowledge excellence in architecture through a system of judging by peer groups.
Institute members who would like to express interest in becoming a member of the jury for the 2024 International Chapter Architecture Awards are invited to complete the form below, and submit as soon as possible, but no later than Monday 13 November, 2023. For further information, refer to the Jury Handbook (note that this is yet to be amended to reflect the 2024 awards dates).
The International Chapter Architecture Awards Jury will consist of 3 to 5 jurors, who will be selected annually from a number of Jurors nominated annually by the International Chapter Council accompanied by a recommendation. The final selection is endorsed by the International Chapter Chair from the proposed nominees. A Jury Chair will be appointed from the selected jurors by the International Chapter Chair.
This awards program acknowledges the work of Institute members who reside outside Australia, as well as domestic members undertaking commissions overseas. Projects entered in the International Architecture category must be located outside the eight State and Territory jurisdictions of the Commonwealth of Australia.
In lieu of a site visit, jury evaluation may be undertaken using (i) a short video walk-through or PowerPoint presentation, (ii) a teleconference interview with short-listed entrants, and/or (iii) an independent visit-report of the local architectural institute
Jury members are required to be:
- current Institute members (except for the guest juror)
- available for jury briefings, visits and deliberations
- confident in evaluating entries according to core criteria
- not entering a project into the 2024 International Chapter Architecture Awards
