Thank you for your interest in entering The Structural Awards 2017
There are three parts to the submission process. To be considered for an award(s), and for the judges to properly assess your entry, all three parts must be completed in full.
Part 1: Complete the online entry form
Part 2: Submit an illustrated report describing the project
Part 3: Pay the entry fee
You do not have to submit your illustrated report at the same time as the online entry form. However, the report and supporting imagery must be submitted before the closing date on Monday 10 April at 17:00.
You will need to consult the FAQs and The Structural Awards 2017 Entry Guide during the submission process.
The judging process is now in three stages. Firstly, a panel of eminent judges will independently look at all entries and award points. The highest scoring entries will then be evaluated by a ‘sitting judging panel’ to establish the shortlist. Once the shortlist is agreed, we will ensure that no conflict of interest exists between a judge and any shortlisted project. Should there be any conflict, those judges will not serve on the final judging panel. The final panel will convene and decide on the category winners.
Part 1. Complete the online entry form
Complete the entry form to start your submission. Once you have submitted the form you will receive a confirmation email with a unique entry ID code. You will need this entry ID code later in the submission process so please keep it to hand.
Each project can be entered into a maximum of two principal categories. The 2017 judges reserve the right to reallocate entries to more appropriate or additional categories. In addition, the judges will consider the entries for one of three special awards.
Please note that it is not possible to save an incomplete form. You must complete all fields and submit without leaving the page.
