1. Who is the awards contest open to?

The ANDYZ accepts submissions from all Designers, Architects, and Students currently enrolled in a Design or Architecture program. Showrooms that provide goods and services to the Design/Build industry are allowed to enter in their own category. All Design, Architecture, and Showroom business must be based within the United States of America, but designs submitted may be located anywhere.

2. Why should I enter?

The ANDYZ Awards recognizes excellent and original design work from across the country. Being a winner of the ANDYZ Awards symbolizes high achievement in design. You know that you have what it takes, and you want others to know that you are in league with the best. Why not be a part of this showcase for award-winning designs.

3. How easy is it to enter?

It is very easy to enter. We have implemented CPJAM as our Awards management company. All you have to do is create an account on their site, pay for your entries online through CPJM, and upload your images and documents directly. As long as you do not have identifying names and marks within your uploads (except for those that require this information), your uploads will go directly to your personal entry file for that submission, and will be made available to the judges in an anonymous format.

Yes, you may enter as many categories as you’d like to. You cannot, however, submit the same design into more than 1 category. The exception is if it is a single room from a multiple space design, and you will be submitting the entire design in a multiple space category, or if it is a product design that is featured in a space that will be entered into another category.

5. Can I enter more than 1 entry into the same category?

Yes, you may enter as many times as you’d like to in the same category, but they must be different designs.

6. Can I submit a project in partnership with another designer, architect or construction/design company?

Yes, you may include all contributing entities for an entry. Each contributor must create an account on CPJAM, so that they can be acknowledged for the Award. Please note that only 1 crystal trophy award will be given for that entry, if it wins. Additional trophies may be purchased separately if needed.
