  • Which category should I enter?
    The Architizer A+Product Awards has 39 categories broken up into Best in Product Type and Best of the Year Categories. You will be able to select the categories most applicable to your products. In most cases, a product will only be eligible for one of the Product Type Categories, but may apply to additional Best of the Year Categories. There is no limit to how many categories a product can be submitted to, and it is possible to win multiple times. The Architizer A+Product Awards reserves the right to move entries to other categories if it is clearly appropriate to do so. If this is the case, you will be notified by email.

    Yes. There is no limit to how many categories a project can be submitted to and it is possible to win multiple times. The more categories you enter, the better your chances to win!

Winning an Award

  • How many entrants win Architizer A+Awards?
    For each of the 39 categories, the Jury will select five (5) finalists which represent the five best in the category. Out of the finalists, one (1) winner will be selected and will win the coveted Jury Award for that specific category. Additionally, the online community, through a public vote, will also select one (1) winner from the five finalists in each category. These products will receive an Architizer A+Popular Choice Award. There will also be a number of Special Mentions, selected by Architizer’s in-house team, given to products that do not make the top five in their respective categories but deserve recognition.

  • Do you hold an event?
    Due to the global nature of the program, Architizer does not host a worldwide awards event.
