Second Annual now open for entries

Toronto, Canada

Azure Magazine

Toronto, Canada, 2012-01-08 - After a hugely successful first run, AZURE Magazine's international competition celebrating excellence in design is once again open for submissions. Now in its second year, the AZ AWARDS program is already regarded as an important distinction for emerging and established firms. Like the magazine itself, the awards are multi-disciplinary, recognizing the contemporary inter-connectedness of architecture, landscape, interiors and product design.

Submissions are open to designers, architects, manufacturers and clients. Students of architecture and design can submit for the A+ Award, which carries with it a $5,000 prize.
A high-calibre jury – to be announced in late January – meets to review the submissions and choose the winners. In the 2011 inaugural year, the jury selected 52 finalists from an impressive 600 entries arriving from more than 25 countries. Ultimately 14 winners received recognition for their outstanding projects.
The public votes online to select the People's Choice winners in April, 2012.
Winning designs and finalists will be featured in AZURE Magazine's AWARDS ANNUAL, on newsstands Summer 2012, and on azuremagazine.com.
The 2012 AZ AWARDS program is open to work completed before December 31, 2011.
