Liturgical/Interior Design Awards :: Entry Guidelines

Eligibility

Architects, liturgical consultants, and interior designers licensed as appropriate in the U.S. and abroad are eligible to submit entries regardless of project location (worldwide), project size, budget, or style. New construction, renovations and restorations are eligible. An entry may be any building interior project completed since January 2010 that supports a religious purpose.

The architect of record, design architect, liturgical designer, or interior designer for the project may make submission with consent of all other parties on the project. When an entrant is not the sole author of the project, all other participants contributing to the design of the project must be given credit as part of the submission regardless of professional discipline.

Project authorship will remain concealed throughout jury deliberations. If authorship is revealed on any portion of the submission including photos, plans, or narrative the entry will be disqualified.

All submissions must have owner's consent for entry.
