Best Diploma Competition ARCHITECTURE 2024

Architecture students and graduates! We would like to invite you to participate in the next, 13th edition of the competition for the best diploma thesis (engineering and master's) defended in 2022-2024. In the competition we are looking for interesting themes, innovative solutions, ecological approaches and a new outlook on design. This year, the winner or winner of the first prize will win 4,000 PLN and a one-month internship at the Franta Group studio in Chorzow!

Since 2012, we have been presenting in the pages of A&B the most interesting graduation projects submitted by our readers. Two years ago, we changed the current formula of the competition, awarding the winner with a cash prize and, thanks to the 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.

Graduates and graduates of the Faculties of Architecture are invited to participate in the 13th edition of the competition and submit their original works diplomas from 2022-2024. 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 Maciej Franta of FRANTA GROUP Architekt Maciej Franta, 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.
