    The WAF awards are the 'Oscars of architecture' and are recognised by 
architects, designers and industry experts as the only truly global 
architecture awards celebrating the very best in design. Do you have what it 
takes to join the WAF Awards winners including Zaha Hadid Architects, BIG, 
Snøhetta, Isay Weinfeld and Foster + Partners as well as ones to watch Vo Trong 
Nghia, Farshad Mehdizadeh and Gustavo Penna, to name a few?

    The Awards are the largest live event of its type in the world. All 
shortlisted practices will present their proposals live, in front of festival 
delegates and the international judging panels. As well as the 30+ category 
winners, the super-jury will choose the best building of the year, the best 
future project, and the best completed landscape.

    In addition, WAF also presents a series of prizes covering small projects, 
best use of colour, best use of timber, glass future, photography, drawing, and 
student work, and to mark this year's festival location, WAF is launching an 
'Amsterdam Prize' for the best building in the city, completed between January 
2017 and July 2018. Finalists will be visited by a special jury and the winner 
will be announced on the first day of the Festival.

    The WAFX awards, launched to mark the tenth anniversary of the Festival 
last year, will continue to be presented to future projects that address 
specific problems likely to affect architects over the coming years, such as 
climate and social equity.

    The 11th edition of the Festival will take place in Amsterdam (28- to 30 
November), where more than 500 architectural practices are expected to compete 
for category and overall prizes, presented at the Gala Awards Dinner which will 
be hosted at the historic Beurs van Berlage.

    Award entries are now open until 1 June, and potential entrants can take 
advantage of 15% discount on the entry fee when submitting three or more 
projects. For further information on how to enter the awards visit:
