The Selection Process
After all submissions have been finalized, the jury will begin the process of selecting the OFFICIAL SELECTION. This first round selects the qualified entries and prepares them for jury voting. The judging is based on design excellence (including aesthetics, environmental, cultural and contextual considerations) and the overall originality of the project – including new, innovative technologies or creative solutions used. The projects’ practicality, and fulfillment of functional requirements, sustainability practices and overall environmental considerations of the project are also taken into account during the judging process.
One entry in each main category (architectural, interior, and landscape design) will receive the trophy.
All successful entrants will receive the Winner’s logo, and are entitled to use it for commercial purposes to promote their winnings. Receiving the MasterPrize award is not only a significant achievement in architecture, but also ensures that the award winners will receive promotional material to publicize their achievements.
