Helpful Hints when submitting entries

When submitting entries the Jury have offered the following advice which they believe will help practices show off not only their projects in the best possible light but also give them the best chance of being shortlisted:

Guidance on Picture submissions

Submit where possible at least 6, but no more than 10, images, - this should include a cross section of a building project which is always helpful to explain the basic building form. This can include preliminary sketches, alternative preliminary schemes, and excerpts from working drawings.
