About AIA Maryland Design Awards
The AIA Maryland Design Awards program recognizes excellence in architectural design by AIA Maryland architects worldwide and for AIA member work in Maryland. Built and unbuilt projects submitted by AIA members are judged on their merit by a distinguished jury of AIA architects. The annual AIA Maryland Design Awards program provides member architects an avenue for peer recognition and honors the architects, clients, and consultants who work together to improve the built environment. With this program AIA Maryland hopes to encourage and recognize distinguished architectural achievement and raise public consciousness of the Architect’s role in shaping the quality of life through design excellence in the community.

Awards Publication – Design Awards to be Featured in State Directory
AIA Maryland has contracted with Innovative Publishing, a leader in Association publications to produce our new annual AIA Maryland 2012-13 Membership Directory and Design Awards publication. This will be a beautiful full color publication distributed to our members and business leaders throughout the state of Maryland and the surrounding region, and will include all of our Architect and Allied Member listings, as well as feature our annual Design Awards.
A special section is reserved in the publication for our Architect Members called “Firm Profiles” which will be an alphabetical directory of full page and two-page spread profiles for members that would like to feature their firm and unique project photos. All of our architect members are invited to participate in this special section.
Commitments must be received by September 20 if you’d like to participate. Janet Deuser from Innovative Publishing is handling spaces and she can assist with designing your profile.
