How to submit

The materials to be submitted for the third edition of AWDA 2017 must be uploaded through the website www.aiap-awda.com, filling all the information required and going through the various steps needed for participation, following registration. The uploaded materials can be integrated or replaced by others until the closing date of the call. The submissions and online presentations will be forwarded to the jury, who will shortlist a group of participants for publication in the AWDA 2017 volume and will later choose, among these, the winner of the Aiap Women in Design Award 2017 as well as the mentions. The Aiap secretariat will contact the shortlisted designers, who may be required to send the original materials and those needed for the publication of their projects.

Exclusion

A design will be excluded from participation in the contest:
a) if it is uploaded after 24:00 (midnight) on the deadline set in the call;
b) if it does not meet the requirements of the call.

Use of the materials submitted


All the materials submitted are meant to be available for publication. Aiap may use them, entirely or in part, during the selection process, and reproduce them, entirely or in part, in publications by Aiap Edizioni, on Aiap's websites and related online tools, in press releases concerning the events related to the publication of books and to any exhibitions related to the AWDA award, always indicating the project’s and the designer’s name, client and year. The designers submitting their works agree that all the materials (texts and images) may be freely adjusted according to the communication needs of the various tools used, relieving Aiap from any responsibility concerning the violation of third parties’ rights. All participants will therefore be asked to sign a waiver.

Protection
Aiap is responsible for the safety of all the projects and works received and for the confidentiality of the information. Aiap guarantees that the upload area is private and only accessible to the jury members.

All information are available on AWDA's website. Requests for clarification may be submitted to help@aiap-awda.com
