21 Mar 2020 at 8:30 am - 6:00 pm AEDT


Considering the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 we are suspending this weekend’s Presentation to Juries event until further notice.

We are currently creating some solutions and alternatives which we will communicate to you as soon as they are confirmed. We understand the need to maintain the integrity of the 2020 AIA Awards program moving forward but our current concern is for the health of our members.

We appreciate your understanding regarding this matter

Entrant information

Timetable sorted by Practice

In Victoria, entrants are required to present their entry to the jury at Presentation to Juries.

Presentations will run over two days with Friday being held at 41 Exhibition Street, Melbourne and Saturday at the RMIT Design Hub.

Presentations are to be maximum of eight minutes in duration, which are immediately proceeded by two minutes of question time. There will be a five-minute buffer between presentations. It is absolutely necessary for the timetable to be strictly adhered to because the knock-on effect will disadvantage other presenters.

All entrants are to ensure that their presentations are tailored to a maximum of eight minutes in order to provide a fair and equal opportunity to all entrants. Presentations that go overtime will be cut short by the Jury.

Presenters will be provided with a presentation pointer/clicker. This allows all presenters to present standing in order to engage directly with the audience and Jury.

Entrants should bring along their presentation on a USB in PDF and PowerPoint format. Presentations do not need to be submitted in advance.

The presentation rooms will contain the following equipment:
Computer: Toshiba laptop running in Windows 7, running PowerPoint 2013 & Adobe Reader
Projector: 16:9 ratio
