(NEW!) Additionally, this year INawards is piloting multiple Distinction Accolades. These are opportunities to highlight unique and special aspects of a project that stand out. For each project application you will have the option to select and provide a brief description for Sustainability + Well-being, Budget or Relevancy. These are entirely optional and not required for entry. Please only provide them if they are relevant to your project. These will not receive a separate award, but will be acknowledged at the awards event. A brief description of each of these Distinction Accolades are:

  • Sustainability + Well-being - How has your project addressed sustainability, climate change, or user well-being in the design and construction of the project?

  • Budget - How did your project overcome out of the ordinary budget constraints or obstacles and how did that impact or ultimately enhance the overall design?

  • Relevancy - How does your project address relevant challenges to our current times (i.e. COVID, Diversity Equity & Inclusion, Black Lives Matter, Unhoused persons)?


We can't wait to see all of the amazing projects submitted by firms from around the Chapter. If you have any questions about submissions please email -


Stay tuned in the coming weeks for updates on tickets, tables and the announcement of our jurors and moderator. 


See you at INawards 2021!
