Changes to the OAA Awards Program

New! Deadline for entries now December 15




 
The Awards program is changing and will now operate on a two-year cycle with Design Excellence and career achievement awards celebrated in even-numbered years and a new Challenge program introduced in odd-numbered years. 
 
Details of the new Challenge program will not be announced until next spring, but its goal will be to highlight the distinct contribution architects and architecture bring to addressing key societal issues. The program will invite Ontario-based individuals and/or teams, including students, with architectural backgrounds and expertise to respond to an identified area of concern using their skills and insights. Stay tuned for more information in the coming months.

Other key changes to the program included the sunsetting of the Concepts, Sustainable Design and Landmark Awards.
 
With the rollout of the new two-year cycle, the next opportunity after this to compete for an OAA Design Excellence Award will be 2020. Don't miss your opportunity to submit, stay tuned for the Call for Entries details which will be available in early November.
