To Be Determined


Dear Newark and Suburban Members,

Now is a perfect time to reflect on the excellent work you have done and to pull together your submission for the annual AIA Newark and Suburban Design Awards. At a socially distanced gathering or virtual, the projects will be judged by our panel of distinguished jurors and the best designs awarded. The date is October 1st, 2020. The location and format will be announced.

NEW! We are excited to introduce a new project category for student designs from NJIT and Kean. These projects will be judged separately. Their fresh ideas and presentation techniques are a window into our future. Engagement, discussion and debate with the next generation are critical to the growth and success of our profession.

Here are the reasons that this year is the right year to submit if you’ve hesitated before:

1. the time is available now;
2. the submission .pdf will become a great way to promote your work both online and in your office space;
3. the software, skills and time to produce a professional board have never been better, easier and faster;
4. this same design can be submitted to the State competition;
5. when you win, you have great news to post on your social, media, website, bio and to your clients;
6. when you win, the medal is a great thing to frame and hang in your entry;
7. and we, your AIA colleagues want to see, recognize, and be inspired by your work.

Please spread the word. Get started today.  The application is available below!
