POSTPONED TO NOVEMBER 5TH: 2020 AIA Design Awards Ceremony, presented by AOS

$100.00 – $4000.00





2020 Design Awards Official Viewing Guide:

Viewing Guide draft 3


Each year our awards program accomplishes three simple, yet invaluable, goals: celebrate the best of this region’s architecture, recognize achievement in a broad range of architectural work, and inform the public of the breadth and value of architectural practice. This year will look a little different… but we’re excited to work toward those same three goals in a new, virtual format!

On the evening of October 29 November 5th, the 2020 Design Awards, presented by AOS, will be livestreamed on YouTube to anyone with an internet connection and an interest in New Orleans architecture!

At 4:00 PM, a lively happy hour slideshow featuring all the project submissions will start the party. Meanwhile, your office can kick off the festivities with a Swag Bag (available with a Firm Sponsorship) full of party favors and other treats. All attendees near and far will be encouraged to take part in our social media Halloween costume challenge, sponsored by NANO LLC. 

At 5:00 PM, we’ll broadcast our pre-recorded Design Awards Ceremony, with our very special guest host Bryan Batt.

During and after the ceremony broadcast, all attendees will be able to share, comment, and interact with each other in real time on our social media channels! After the ceremony broadcast wraps, the party will continue on social media, where we’ll announce the winners of the costume contest, and feature the reactions of award winners.
