2015 AZ Awards now open for entries

Toronto, Canada

Azure Magazine

The 2015 AZ Awards program is open to work completed before December 31, 2014. Submissions close Friday, February 20, 2015.

Toronto, Canada, 2015-01-09 -

Kicking off its fifth exciting year, AZURE Magazine’s international competition celebrating excellence in design and architecture is once again open for submissions. The AZ Awards are 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, firms, clients and manufacturers of all disciplines. Students in these fields can submit for the A+ Award, which carries with it a $5,000 prize.


A high-calibre jury – to be announced in January – meets to review the submissions and choose the winners. Last year, the jury selected 49 finalists from an impressive 652 entries arriving from more than 36 countries. Ultimately 13 winners received recognition for their outstanding projects.


The public votes online to select the People’s Choice winners in April. Winning designs and finalists will be featured in AZURE’s Awards Annual, on newsstands in June, on azuremagazine.com and dispatched to our network of media partners.
