All architects registered in the United States or abroad, as well as interior designers working in collaboration with architects, are welcome to submit interiors-only projects—residential, commercial, institutional, and public—that have been completed in the last year. Special consideration will be paid to works that incorporate innovations in design, program, building technology, sustainability, and/or materials. Winning projects will be selected by an editorial jury and published in the September 2023 issue of Architectural Record.



All entries must be submitted by May 17, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. ET.



  • Entry is open to any architect and/or interior designer registered in the U.S. or abroad.
  • Projects must be built within the last 12 months.
  • They may be new or renovated, – commercial, institutional, public or residential, – and domestic or international.
  • Entries must be approved by client for publication and, if selected, be available for a visit by a writer (pending COVID-related stipulations.)
  • Projects previously published as a feature in print or on the web in Architectural Record or other national and/or international English-language media will not be eligible. Other published but less-prominently featured projects will be evaluated at the discretion of the jury.



Entries must be submitted as a multi-page PDF (no larger than 10 MB total) that includes:

  1. A succinct project description (no more than 500 words) including architect or firm name, project name & location, program, completion date, brief, and solution.
  2. A comprehensive selection of at least 10 full-page, professionally photographed images. Identifying captions are helpful. In addition, all images should be arranged in the same direction, whether in portrait or landscape format.
  3. Plans, drawings, and elevations with scale and north arrow.

NOTE: A photo release form will be required for all winning projects.



Entries must be accompanied by a credit card payment for US$100 (then US$50 for each additional project), payable after the upload has been completed.
