Benefits for CODAawards Winners:

Global Recognition

CODAawards winners are promoted by CODAworx through an international PR campaign, delivering unparalleled public recognition through print, social media, and digital presence throughout the year. It's not uncommon for award-winning projects to attract press attention this way.

Showcase in Interior Design magazine

As our National Media Partner, Interior Design announces the winners every year in a fall issue and on their website. Interior Design is the leading authority in the design industry and is read by architects and designers around the world.

Have Your Work Seen by Thought Leaders in the Industry

Our distinguished jury of luminaries in design and art will be viewing and scoring entries. From top architects and designers, to leaders in the art world such as museum curators and leading arts organizations, they represent some of the most forward-thinking individuals who are major influencers in our field.

Get that Stamp of Approval

Winners will have unlimited bragging rights; winning projects are showcased in CODAworx marketing and events throughout the year and are tagged as CODAaward winners in all web searches going forward. In addition, winners receive a one-year CODAworx Pro membership (valued at $600 USD).

Exhibit at the Octagon Museum

Through our partnership with The Architects Foundation, your winning project will be exhibited in the bi-annual winners exhibition at the Octagon Museum in the summer of 2023. This gem of a museum is on the grounds of the National AIA Headquarters in Washington, DC, and is visited by thousands of architecture enthusiasts.

Entries are reviewed by a jury of thought leaders in the design, architecture, and art worlds. Our jurors evaluate each entry on three unique criteria across ten categories:

  • The integration of commissioned artwork into site-specific projects, completed in the last 3 years
  • The strength of the collaborative process among the creative teams, commissioners, and industry resources
  • The ability of a project to blend the art and design seamlessly to create a place as art, rather than a place with art
