Announcement of Winners
Best of Practice winners will reach AN’s audience of over 1 million readers and AEC industry leaders.
An initial announcement of the winners will be made in June 2023 on archpaper.com and via our social media channels. Winners will also be featured in our end of the year Best Of issue, which will publish in December 2023 and be distributed at industry events and conferences throughout 2024.
AN’s Best of Practice Awards is open to all North American offices, though submitted projects or case studies may be international.
Entrants are asked to submit a 500-word statement making the case for excellence in practice. The statement should describe the way the office operates, which could include its philosophy of design, the culture promoted within the office, how employee growth is cultivated, how the office interacts with the public and/or communities, the office’s position on sustainability and the environment, the office’s investment in research and technology, or any other salient feature of the practice.
Entrants should also submit up to 10 images/slides that support the statement. These items can include photography and/or drawings of projects or the office itself, graphs and/or charts that illustrate claims made in the statement, testimonials from clients or community groups, articles published about the office and/or its work, and any other document that backs up the office’s claim to excellence.
Representatives of offices or developers and public relations professionals are allowed to submit on behalf of their clients. Please provide your direct contact information, but include the name of the entrant in the “Company” field on the registration form.
Registration must be completed via the registration portal linked to this page. Submissions must include up to 10 images and/or supporting documents and a written statement about the practice (500-word limit).
