GIfA invites members to submit entries for the 2021 GIfA Award for Architecture. Projects completed between 1 January 2019 and 31 March 2021 qualify. Eligible projects will be forwarded to the national panel of assessors for adjudication of the SAIA Award of Merit and For Excellence.
Should your practice have completed projects in other regions, please contact the relevant institute for information regarding their awards programme. Please note that their closing dates differ from the closing date of the Gauteng Institute for Architecture.
Work may be submitted to the Region by the author or submitted by any member of the Region with the author’s, or other responsible person’s permission.
Projects that fall in an area under jurisdiction of the Regional Institute, and were completed during the period 01 January 2019 to 31 March 2021, are eligible for entry to the GIfA and SAIA’s awards programme 2021-2022.
The extension of 3 months has been considered due to the delays in the construction industry during 2020.
Please remember that all entries receiving regional awards will automatically be entered into SAIA’s Award for Merit and Award for Excellence which will be conducted in 2022/2023, provided that the entry is that of a paid up SAIA Practice Member.
