Below is some information to help you submit your entry:

Images: You can submit up to 11 images. Each image must be under 10MB. Please include a square main image that best represents your project, as this will be published if you get shortlisted. You can include up to ten supporting images. Do not upload renderings or digital visualisations. Include architectural plans where appropriate. Please submit image files via a Baidu Drive, Dropbox or similar link in the relevant field on the entry form. Do not send files.

Video: It's also a good idea to include a link to a video about your project in the relevant field on the entry form. This should be clear and informative. We recommend that it's no longer than five minutes in length. Please submit videos via a link, do not send files.

Entry text: You will need to provide a short description as well as include key project details such as the brief, information on materials and how the building is made, or product manufactured. You will be asked to outline any innovative thinking and if the design contributes to society or meets the principles of inclusive design, for example, and if any strategies are in place to maximise re-use and minimise waste. Write your entry succinctly and clearly, sticking to the facts, and avoiding exaggeration.

Word count limit: These are stated in the entry form. Please take the word count limit into consideration when writing your entry.

Entering on behalf of the designer: Make sure to ask permission first when entering on behalf of the designer and credit any studio or designer who should be named should the entry be shortlisted or win.

Submitting your entry: Once you have filled out your entry forms, you will need to pay using our WeChat mini program. This will provide you with a code that you will need to add to the relevant field on your entry form before you submit it.

Once you have paid for your entry and added the payment code to your entry form, email the completed form to [email protected].

Note: Once you've paid your entry fee there is no further obligatory payment to make. We do not charge fees for winners, trophies, publication or anything else. In the event that we hold a winners' ceremony, there may be a charge for this but attendance is not obligatory.
