ABOUT A|N BEST OF DESIGN 2018

The Architect’s Newspaper speaks directly to leaders in architecture and design with news, products, developments, trends, and updates. With our magazine, A|N Interior, our outreach to the design community has grown exponentially.

Our Sixth Annual Best Of Design Awards is a unique project-based awards program that showcases great buildings, building elements, interiors, and installations.

Entrants are invited to submit completed works in 45 categories that reflect A|N’s editorial coverage, as well as the interests and obsessions of our readers.

The BoD jury will judge entries based on several criteria—strength of the presentation, evidence of innovation, creative use of new technology, sustainability, and, most importantly, good design.

New for 2018, we are accepting submissions from Mexico and Canada. We have also expanded our Interiors and Unbuilt categories.
