To accommodate requests for a little more time to submit registrations for the 2013 Inform Awards, the deadline for registration is extended to March 15, 2013. In fairness to those who have already registered, the deadline for project submission is also extended to March 22. Both days fall on Fridays.

In other news, 2013 Inform Awards Jury Chair L. William Chapin, FAIA, has selected a jury. He will be joined in April by Graham Gund, FAIA; Susan Maxman, FAIA; Bing Thom, AIA, to select the projects highlighted this year in the categories of Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, and Object Design.

The Inform Awards recognize design excellence beyond the more strictly defined realm of whole-building design. Specifically they highlight LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE, INTERIOR DESIGN, and OBJECT DESIGN.

The Inform Awards are open to anyone in the Inform magazine primary circulation area (Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, and the District of Columbia). The program recognizes the work of  architects, interior designers, landscape architects, furniture designers, industrial designers, students, faculty, and clients.

Position your award-worthy talents for publication in Inform and in news releases to Mid-Atlantic publications and get your work before the eyes of your clients, potential clients, colleagues, and the public.

Entrants must have a business address in Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, the District of Columbia, or North Carolina, and submitted work must have been completed after January 1, 2008. For members of the Virginia Society AIA, there is a special entry-fee discount.

Award winners in both the Honor and Merit categories will be featured in a special section of Inform magazine and announced to the public. The registration deadline is now March 15, 2013, and you can enter online or via email, fax, or mail using the PDF registration form.

The Inform Awards fee structure for 2013 is $135 per project for members of the Virginia Society AIA, and $175 per project for entrants who are not members of the Virginia Society AIA. Note that the fees are due upon registration, non-refundable, and non-transferable.

As a clarification, the Object Design category covers furniture, appliances, fixtures, and building components and systems, as opposed to full-building design. For more details, click on one of the registration links above.
