Awards Submissions Due
To encourage excellence in architectural design and planning and to provide an avenue through which architects may gain recognition by their peers and the public. The ultimate goal is to raise the standards of architectural design excellence for both the architectural community and the public. The AIA Montana Awards Program Committee would like to emphasize that all entrants have an equal opportunity for recognition, regardless of project type, scale or budget. The jury process has been designed to review projects on the basis of individual merit. Submittals will be accepted from individual AIA Montana Chapter members and member firms only, and must be submitted by the designing Architect. Submitted projects do not necessarily have to be from within Montana. You may submit multiple projects. When one architect is not the sole author, all other participants substantially contributing to the design of the project must be given credit as part of the submission, regardless of professional discipline. Publicity: The AIA Montana Chapter will provide notification of Awards to regional and national publications. The digital drawings, digital materials, and photographs of each winning entry will be used for unrestricted publicity. All digital photographs, digital materials, and drawings included in the submission must be cleared for reproduction for publicity and for use in articles related to not only this program, but also similar regional, national, and international programs. Entrants are responsible for any royalties, copyright, or photographic fees. Awards: A professional jury will evaluate the entries on their own merit. Entries will be judged individually, not in competition with each other. The primary resources for the jury will be the brief written material and photographs, as described herein, which are submitted by all entrants. The Awards Jury shall solely determine the number of awards. A representative of the professional jury will present the awards at the 2021 AIA Montana Fall Conference in Bozeman, Montana. A copy of the Award Certificate will be made available at the award ceremony or shortly thereafter. KEY DATES: All entries must be received no later than 3:00 p.m. Tuesday, August 4, 2021.

AIA Montana 2021 Annual Fall Conference
Bozeman, MT – GranTree Hotel Theme: “Come Together” We are excited and hopeful to "Come Together" as AIA Montana to celebrate our 100 Year Anniversary, once again greet one another face to face, and learn how we can move forward. Join us as we discuss how the Covid 19 pandemic has affected our profession from how our offices function to how we see our role in facilitating design solutions based on our experiences over the last year. As Montana experiences the migration of many who wish to live and work in our state due to the quality of life and limited population, we will discuss the impact on housing, schools, commercial and infrastructure and discover how we can progress social justice within our communities and foster diversity within our profession; as well as address the ongoing challenges of providing shelter for homeless in our communities and examples of political leadership to bring creative solutions to this issue. The basic question will be how can architects get involved to ensure success for the next 100 years.
