Call for Applications: 2022 Emerging Professional Awards

The Emerging Professionals Awards Program recognizes excellence in the architectural profession by architects who have achieved licensure within the past ten years and is presented by AIA Miami and AIA Fort Lauderdale Chapters of the American Institute of Architects. These Awards are intended to acknowledge the accomplishments and achievements of the young architectural professional, encourage a synergy of involvement and participation among that demographic, and promote public consciousness of the built environment.

The submittals are open to architects who have achieved licensure within the past ten years and can be submitted by individuals or firms in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. All sample projects, if applicable, must have been completed within the past five years.

The awards are juried by a panel of non-competing, award-winning, out-of-area architects who have not served as awards jurors for at least the past 6 years. Winners will be announced at The Emerging Professionals Awards Party on Thursday, June 16 at 6:30 pm.

Deadline for receipt of application/fees & supporting material(s) EXTENDED!

Earn your Architecture License!

To practice architecture in the United States, you must earn a license from the regulatory board in the jurisdiction where you want to practice. Each of the 55 U.S. states and territories, or jurisdictions, sets their own requirements for licensure in that jurisdiction, but they all include three core components: education, experience, and examination.

NCARB recommends and encourages national standards for these three areas, which many licensing boards choose to adopt—although others set their own unique qualifications.
