The AIA Virginia oversees a variety of annual competitions and awards programs open to many participants. The Design Awards recognize excellence in design, while the Honor Awards acknowledge individual and group achievement in service, support, and practice, as well as design. The AIA Virginia Prize, a student competition, is awarded following a weekend charrette at the three Virginia architecture schools.

The American Institute of Architects has a long tradition of recognizing individuals and organizations for their outstanding achievements in support of the profession of architecture and the AIA. Learn more about AIA National awards programs, submission information, and deadlines. More>>
