2017 Design Awards Jury

Juror selection is based upon the locating impartial individuals who represent high levels of achievement,
design quality and professional integrity. Every attempt is made to create a balanced panel that will provide
fair judgment to all entries.

New for 2017! In 2017, the AIA Honolulu Design Awards jury will consist of five individuals, four of whom will be members of an AIA chapter outside of Hawaii. One juror will be a member of AIA Honolulu and travel to the chapter
where the others jurors are located in order to participate in the judging and ensure that the uniqueness of
Hawaii Architecture is recognized and appreciated by the non-local jury.

Members of the design awards committee whose firms have submitted in that year may not be present and/or may not participate during any aspect of jury deliberations.

Entry Policy

A $100 administrative fee will be charged to all withdrawn projects, where AIA has been notified in advance of the request to withdraw. After Friday, June 9, 2017 no refund requests from entrants will be considered. There will be no refunds for submissions that are LATE, INCOMPLETE, or disqualified per the deadlines/guidelines of this awards program.
