All projects submitted after this time will not be considered for the Graduate Architecture Prize of 2012, you will however be eligible for next year's competition in August.
Please follow the following guidelines in order to participate:
Submit in English Language: Please submit your final project in English in order for us to fully understand what you wish to portray. In the last edition, several projects were submitted in a different language and although we did our best to translate them ourselves, it was still very difficult for us to grasp the essence of those projects. We encourage you to provide text in your own language as well, to reach a larger audience. If you do submit a project written in your native language, please include a clear and concise summary in English.
Max. 10 Presentation Boards: Please do not exceed 10 presentation boards (scaled size approximately A4 in size, for an average computer monitor), either in portrait or landscape view to be submitted to Register@GraduateArchitecture.com. The total size may not exceed 10mb and should be sent as a single .PDF file.
Project Description included in presentation boards: A clear and and to the point description of your final project is necessary for us as well as other readers to understand your thoughts. All text should be included in your 10 presentation panels.
5-digit code: In addition you can make up your own 5 digit reference code (composed of either letters and/or numbers for organizational reasons). It can be any combination of letters and/or numbers (please keep in mind it is only for a reference so make up a code you can remember). This code does not need to be on your presentation panels but do name the .PDF with your code (example: John_Doe_ABC01.pdf).
Contact Information: Submit your personal or group contact information in the following format: 01. Project title 02. Names of all participants & e-mail addresses. 03. The university at which you attained your architectural degree 04. The names and contact information of the tutors at your University.
