Design Awards Committee 

The Design Awards Committee administers the Chapter’s annual Design Awards which recognizes exceptional design work of AIA Honolulu members. In addition to the professional juried and popular choice awards categories, the program also includes the Student Design Awards.  The Design Awards also encourage public recognition of design excellence as the award winners are published in Hawaii Business Magazine each year. The People's Choice Award engages the public as they vote for their favorite entry. The program serves as one of the larger networking events of the year for the Chapter.

Design Awards Committee Goals

  • Assemble a panel of jurors for judging of the professional and student categories

  • Assist administrative staff in planning the Awards Banquet/Ceremony to recognize award winners

  • Assist board & staff in obtaining sponsorship for the Design Awards
