Best Diploma Competition ARCHITECTURE 2023
Architecture students and graduates! We would like to invite you to participate in the next, 12th edition of the competition for the best diploma theses (engineering and master's) defended in 2021-2023. In the competition we are looking for interesting topics, innovative solutions, ecological approaches and a new outlook on design. This year, the winner or first prize winner will win 4,000 zlotys and a month-long internship at Ultra Architects studio in Poznan!
Since 2012, we have been presenting in the pages of A&B the most interesting thesis submitted by our male and female readers. In the previous edition, we changed the previous formula of the competition, awarding the winner with a cash prize and, thanks to cooperation with respected architectural studios, the possibility of a month-long professional internship. What's more, a few years ago, we expanded the cycle of the Best Diploma competition dedicated to architectural projects to include a new category - INTERIORS.
We invite male and female graduates of the Faculties of Architecture to participate in the 12th edition of the competition and submit their original works - diplomas from 2021-2023 . The best of the submitted diplomas will be published in the pages of our magazine or e-issue and portal, along with an original author's description. From this pool of works, the jury, which in addition to the editors and editors of A&B will include Marcin Kościuch and Tomasz Osięgłowski of Ultra Architects, will select the winners, and the Readers, in an online vote, the winner of the Audience Award. We publish the results of each edition of the competition presenting the most interesting works at the beginning of the next calendar year.
