The AIA Virginia’s Awards for Excellence in Architecture recognize outstanding design, built and unbuilt, from the past eight years. Also known as the Design Awards, the program is juried by a team of esteemed practitioners. No specific number of awards is set, and the program is open to all categories of building as well as interiors projects. The location of projects is not restricted, but any built works submitted for consideration must have been completed after January 1, 2008.

The Call for Entries for the 2015 Awards for Excellence in Architecture are now open through July 30.

For 2015 there are five categories in the Awards for Excellence: Architecture, Historic Preservation, Interior Design, Contextual Design, and Residential Design. Entries  and project submissions are due by 5 p.m. on July 30. See descriptions of the awards categories.

Awards certificates are presented each November at Architecture Exchange East, the AIA Virginia’s annual conference. They are also honored during the Visions for Architecture gala, and serve as the subject of an annual exhibition at the Virginia Center for Architecture.
