Competition / 20+10+X Architecture Awards 3rd Cycle / World Architecture Community

The aim of the WA Community Awards is to highlight and publish remarkable projects that might otherwise remain unnoticed by the international public but have the potential to inspire exciting questions about contemporary architectural discourse.
WA is an "online community" initiated by Suha ?zkan and 200+ invited Honorary Members, and a growing number of registered members (3500 in October).
Awarding follows a most democratic procedure where all member's ratings and the votes of all Honorary Members are effective in the final decisions.
Registrations are completely FREE so that all architects can participate both as candidates and judges.
Architects from ALL countries can submit ALL of their buildings (realized or not) for the appreciation of the WA Community. Recent projects (not older than 10 years) will have more chances to be shortlisted for the Awards. Students, landscape architects, engineers may also submit for the awards projects they are the author of: we do not check or accredit diplomas.
Projects submitted to the WA Portal between 25 October 2008 - 23 January 2009 will be considered for the 3rd Cycle. All projects submitted earlier can be reconsidered if their pages are updated with significant new material by their architects.
Criteria for Recognition:
NOVELTY; ORIGINALITY, and CREATIVITY in design that reflect and inspire a commitment to the art of architecture are the major criteria. The WA Portal tries to bridge the gap between theory and practice: thus the architect's explanations and member's discussions on submissions will be critical for recognition as much as the design itself.
