Welcome to the AZ Awards, an international competition recognizing excellence in design.

AZURE Magazine’s international awards program is open for submissions. Now in its fourth year, the AZ Awards is already regarded as an important distinction for emerging and established firms. Like the magazine itself, the awards are multi-disciplinary, recognizing the interconnectedness of architecture, landscape, interiors and product design. Assisted by the editors of AZURE, a panel of international experts drawn from each of the disciplines meets together to review the submissions and choose the winners. The 2014 AZ Awards program is open to work completed before December 31, 2013.
