    Supportive Text:
    In 250 words or less, please summarise your entry. This information will appear alongside your entry on the WAN Awards website. Keep it simple, clear and concise.  

    Please make sure to include the use of the building if not immediately obvious. 

    Main Image:
    As part of your submission, you are required to submit one main image to represent your entry on the WAN Awards website. Please ensure the image is high res and a minimum of 300dpi. 

    Please supply a 10 page, one sided, hi-res A3 PDF (this can be portrait or landscape) 
    Presentation is important, judges are influenced by a clearly presented scheme that they understand. It's the first step to get them to connect with your project. Follow the tips below and you will greatly increase your chances of winning.
    • Show the site clearly in its surroundings and show orientation (north point). Judges always like to see how a project responds to its environment.
    • Clearly identify which element is being submitted, especially in phased projects and masterplans.
    • Include all floor plans at max size to make it easier to understand. The judges are working on A3, so multiple floor plans on one page make it hard for them to follow. Label and or list the different plans for easy orientation of the project.
    • There are no border restrictions on printing so feel free to design your ten pages with either a boarder or full bleed.
    • Your presentations will be printed so make sure the images or diagrams included are at a high resolution (300 dpi) so that they are not pixelated when printing.
    • Any more than ten pages will not be accepted as a submission. Please do not create a cover or index page as this will be put aside and uses up valuable presentation space.
    • Include large images of your project from all sides. The jury do not want to guess what the back or sides of the building look like because you have not incorporated any information.
    • Please incorporate text including the key challenges of the client brief and how your design addressed it – include bullet points and short sentences where possible. We advise around 500 words. 

    The presentations are NOT anonymous. Feel free to incorporate your firm’s name and logo where appropriate.

    There are specific entry requirements for this category.
