Archiboo launches 2017 Archiboo Web Awards

26 May, 2017

Archiboo is inviting entries for the 2017 Archiboo Web Awards, celebrating companies using the online space to communicate great architecture.

The winners will be named at a special awards ceremony in September during the London Design Festival.

The awards are open to architects, developers, engineers, estate agents and others harnessing the power of the internet to tell their stories in ways that are interesting and accessible.

Last year’s Best Overall Experience Award was won by The Modern House. Other previous winners included Feilden Clegg Bradley, Conran & Partners and BDP.

Judges are drawn from media, tech, academia and property and include Jeremy Till, head of Central Saint Martins, Kate Goodwin, head of architecture at the Royal Academy and Francesco D’Orazio, Co-founder of Pulsar.

The media partner is Dezeen, the world’s most popular design and architecture magazine.

Entrants can choose from ten categories, four of which are new for 2017. They are: Best Use of Video, Best Use of Digital Imagery, Best Offline Experience and Best Use of Innovation. The others are Best Use of Technology sponsored by Adrem, Best Use of Social Media, Best Written Content, Best Visual Design and Best Home Page.

The Best Overall Experience Award, sponsored by Arup, the world-famous firm of planners, designers, engineers and consultants, is open to entrants who enter two or more awards.

Archiboo founder Amanda Baillieu said:

“Last year our finalists demonstrated just how much the Internet is helping change the way we talk about architecture. Our four new awards reflect the new technologies architects and others have at their disposal.

We very much look forward to seeing this year’s entries.”

Dezeen founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs said:

“Archiboo’s awards are a great idea as they encourage architects to think about their website as the public face of their practice and a vital immunisation tool, and reward the best examples.”

Entries are now open at awards.archiboo.com
