Process and Fees

There are four simple steps involved in submitting your entries.

1. Register or log in
If you haven’t already registered or submitted an entry for this year’s program, you will need to register.

2. Choose award category
There are four categories, which attract entry fees.

  1. Built projects – city and regional scale
    This category recognizes completed built projects that are at a town, suburb, city or region scale.
  2. Built projects – local and neighbourhood scale
    This category recognizes completed built projects at a site, local, or neighbourhood scale.
  3. Leadership, advocacy and research – city and regional scale
    This category recognizes proposed projects and ideas that could facilitate, guide or promote urban design excellence at a national, state/territory, regional or city scale.
  4. Leadership, advocacy and research – local and neighbourhood scale
    This category recognizes proposed projects and ideas that could facilitate, guide or promote urban design excellence at a site, local or neighbourhood scale.

3. Create entry submission
Before beginning your entry submission, read the conditions. Submitting an entry means that you have read and agreed to all the conditions, including obtaining appropriate releases and authorities in writing from clients, collaborating organisations, copyright holders for entry submission materials, licensee, photographers and, where applicable, the principal/director of your organisation.

You will be prompted to respond to specific written criteria and upload supporting materials (images, drawings, documents) in your secure area. Entry submissions will be accepted until Tuesday, 21 July. Do not leave submission until the last minute as it can take time to complete an entry.

FEES

Once you have completed steps two and three (above) you may pay and submit your project. The first entry attracts a fee of $385. The system will automatically charge subsequent entries (i.e. from the same applicant) at the reduced rate of $285. Each submission and payment is confirmed by the issuing of a tax receipt, sent to your email address. Retain a copy for taxation purposes.

Visa, Mastercard and Amex are accepted. 

Requests to withdraw an entry will be accepted if made in writing (vic@planning.org.au) prior to the submission deadline of Tuesday, 21 July 2020, with refund of the entry fee less an administration charge of $150. After Tuesday, 21 July 2020, projects may not be withdrawn.
