Presenting one of the most sought-after accolades in the Asia-Pacific region, Perspective Limited is now welcoming project submissions for its annual awards competition, relaunched with a new name as it strides forward into its second decade: A&D Trophy Awards — Architecture & Design Awards Asia-Pacific.
The A&D Trophy Awards (formerly known as The Perspective Awards) will be open for entry on 1 May 2014, until 15 July 2014.
Editorial director of Perspective Limited, Ms Suzanne Miao, said: “The A&D Trophy Awards is the sole design and architecture awards competition in the Asia-Pacific region with the power and prestige of a panel of international judges of the highest rank. This is a unique opportunity for architects and designers to expand their footprint throughout Australasia and beyond, as winning projects will have the opportunity for global press coverage via our international media partners.”
Noting the long-standing support over the years from the industry for the Awards programme, Ms Miao also highlighted this year’s outstanding corporate sponsorship of the A&D Trophy Awards 2014: Gold sponsor Steve Leung Designers Limited, and supporting sponsors Aedas Limited, Benoy Hong Kong, I Architects Limited and Ronald Lu & Partners.
“We welcome A&D professionals from around the world, as well as local Hong Kong architecture and design students, to join in and raise their own profiles as well as our industry standards to the next level,” Ms Miao said. “We have witnessed an exponential growth in number of entries submitted over the past decade — and once again, we have one of the most impressive line-ups of top industry experts on our judges panels.”
