However, a project can only be entered once into each award category. Please ensure your entry meets the criteria for the award category you are entering.

Are the awards open to Architects only?
Anyone can submit an entry on behalf of an architect, including members of the public, but the prize money (if won) will be awarded to the architect of the project. Submission of an entry implies consent of all members of the project team to enter this competition.
If you are not an architect but involved in the project, you will have the opportunity to showcase your involvement in an award winning project.
We accept entries from building designers for the Robin Dods Roof Tile Excellence Award category only.
What information is required for the project statement?
You can include relevant background information about your project, a short summary to describe your project, where it is, the reason why the project was built, what the client was looking for, what bricks/pavers were used, and the team involved. The project statement should be around 100 – 250 words. We will include the project statement in the Think Brick Awards Booklet and on our websites.
How do I enter the New Entrant Category?
Any architectural studio entering the Think Brick Awards for the first time will automatically be entered into the New Entrant Category.
Why does it take so long to upload high resolution images?
It can take some time to upload high resolution images to the Awards website. We recommend you upload your high resolution images using a high speed internet connection. If you have difficulty sending high resolution images to the Awards website, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why do we require high resolution images?
All entries received will be printed in the Awards booklet and showcased visually at the Think Bricks Award Gala Event on a large screen. The printed booklet will showcase your project and be available at the Awards Gala Event.
What should I choose if I can’t find the manufacturer, collection or bricks used in the drop down menu under project details?
You can choose the word ‘Other’ in the Brick/Block/Paver/Roof Tile Manufacturer drop down menu (it is in alpha order so can be found by scrolling to ‘O’).
Then ‘other’ will appear as an option in the next two sections (collection and bricks used section) – then you can specify all the details in ‘Please Specify’.
