For the sixth year in a row, Marvin Windows and Doors is honoring the best in architectural creativity with its Architects Challenge. Accepting submissions now through May 2, 2014, architects are encouraged to enter their best Marvin projects for the chance to win national recognition for their work, as well as other prestigious prizes.
Similar to last year’s Challenge, 10 winners will be chosen by a jury of well-respected experts in the field of architecture. All juried winners receive a VIP winners’ weekend in Minneapolis and Warroad, Minn. (this trip will count for AIA continuing education credit). Additionally, of the 10 winners, one project will be chosen as the grand prize “Best In Show” winner, who will have the opportunity to partner with Architectural Digest magazine to produce two videos of the winning project. The “Best In Show” winner will also have their project featured in an upcoming advertisement in Architectural Digest.
The public will also have the chance to choose their favorite design projects as part of the Architects Challenge Showdown. All entries will automatically be a part of the Showdown, which will move through several rounds of knockout-style voting to reveal who is the public’s choice. This winner of the Showdown will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the Reinvention Symposium in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 13. Voting for this phase of the challenge begins June 2, 2014.
Registration Deadline: Friday, May 2, 2014.
