All boards are required to be uploaded through the ACSA website in Portable Document Format (PDF) or image (JPEG) files. Participants should keep in mind that, due to the large number of entries, preliminary review does not allow for the hanging end-to-end display of presentation boards. Accordingly, participants should not use text or graphics that cross over from board to board.
Project authorship must remain anonymous. The names of student participants, their schools, or faculty sponsors, must NOT appear on the boards, narrative/abstract or project title. If authorship is revealed on any submission materials the entry will be disqualified.
Students are required to upload final submissions through the ACSA Competition website at www.acsa-arch.org by 5:00 pm, Eastern Time, on January 17, 2018. If the Submission is from a team of students all student team members will have the ability to upload the digital files.
Once the final submit button is pressed no additional edits, uploads, or changes can be made. Once the final Submission is uploaded and submitted each student will receive a confirmation email notification. You may “save” your submission and return to complete. Please note:
the submission is not complete until the “complete this submission” button has been pressed. For team projects: each member of team projects may submit the final project.
Winning projects will be required to submit high-resolution original files/ images for use in competition publications and exhibit materials. By uploading your files, you agree that the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA), and Architecture 2030 have the rights to use your winning submission, images and materials in a summary publication, online and in promotional and exhibition resources. AIA, ACSA, and Architecture 2030 will attribute authorship of the winning design to you, your team, faculty, and institutional affiliation. Additionally, you hereby warrant that the submission is original and that you are the student author(s) of the design submission.
