NEW THIS YEAR∗∗∗ 

PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD
AIA Arkansas is creating a NEW AWARD in 2015.  This award is intended to give the AIA Arkansas Design Awards Program and your projects increased exposure; ultimately increasing public awareness of the level of design excellence produced by Arkansas architects.  All entries will be publicized on our website and promoted via social media for the public to view and vote for their favorite project.  

TRAVELING BOARD DISPLAY
AIA Arkansas has implemented a traveling display of the project boards that are presented at the convention.  The boards will be on display for public view for a full year, in a place selected by each AIA Arkansas Section. The first rotation for the 2014 board was at studioMAIN in Little Rock through public and private events.  They will soon be displayed in Fort Smith, northwest Arkansas and the Jonesboro area. 
Boards will be returned to their owner at the following convention.

As of last year, all winners are added on the Design Awards Page of this website and their media photos will become the rotating banner images on the home page.

You don’t want to miss these opportunities.

Entry forms and fees paid by credit card may be submitted electronically to AIA Arkansas. If paying by check, please submit the entry form electronically and send payments to the address listed below.
