Recognise excellence in architecture and interior design

Multi-format submissions

Entrants can upload HD video and large high quality photos to showcase their designs, 3D mock-ups or plans. Award Force accepts all file types, but you have ultimate control over what file types you’d like to allow. 

Unlimited uploads and attachments

Your entrants can upload an unlimited amount of files and attachments to tell their story and provide all the context required to make good awards decisions.

Collect third party nominations

Handy workflow features allow you to collect third party nominations, recommendations and testimonials. This provides an easy way for the wider architectural community to get involved and support their preferred architects and designers. 

Your brand, shining through

Flexible options allow you to theme Award Force to match your brand exactly and provides smart and dedicated locations for sponsor placement.

Visually stunning galleries

Exhibit your architecture and design entries elegantly with the Award Force gallery feature. 

You control the layout of the gallery page, decide which submissions are visible to viewers, and control options to allow it to run perpetually, offering a readily accessible archive of past submissions and winners.

Slideshow views 

Activate the slideshow feature on galleries for a low touch, high impact display that cycles through images and video. 

Perfect for judging meetings, gala events or sharing on social media. 

Packing slips

Do you require entrants to send in physical items such as blueprints, models or swatches as part of their online entry? That’s easy with Award Force. You can generate unique packing slips for each entry directly in the Award Force application. 

Entrants simply download, print and include the slip with the physical items. 

When it arrives, simply scan the QR code and you’ll be taken directly to the entry online. Handy!

Powerful judging modes

With Award Force, you have four powerful judging modes to utilise in your search for the best architectural submission. 

Use Qualifying mode for shortlisting submissions, Top Pick for ranking, VIP judging for in-depth assessments by an expert panel and Public voting to have submissions assessed by a larger community of judges or audience. 

I would advise anyone running an awards program, especially those using a paper-based system, to consider an online system like Award Force. It is more cost-effective and eases the judges’ workload.
