Vote for Australia’s favourite house

In celebration of World Architecture Day, voting will open on Monday 1 October for the annual People’s Choice Award as part of the Australian Institute of Architects’ 2018 National Architecture Awards.

The People’s Choice Award gives members of the public the opportunity to select their favourite house from the 15 residential projects on the national jury’s shortlist.

Chosen from 41 projects eligible for national judging after the State and Territory Architecture Awards held earlier in the year, the shortlisted homes showcase the best in residential architecture – both new builds and alterations and additions – from around the country.

Voting is open until 5:00pm AEDT, Friday 28 October 2018. Some fantastic prizes, thanks to our Corporate Partners, are also up for grabs for those who vote in the People’s Choice Award and enter the competition by telling us in 25 words or less why their chosen project is their favourite.

The winning project will be revealed at the National Architecture Awards ceremony on Thursday 1 November in Melbourne along with all the winners as chosen by the expert panel of judges.
