The American Institute of Architects has announced that it is launching its sixth annual AIA Film Challenge.

The Institute notes that this format is intended to help participants maintain safety guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic.

About the Contest

The films should “tell the story of architects partnering with communities and civic leaders to design a healthy, sustainable, just world that improves peoples’ lives.”

Approximately 10 to 15 submissions will advance as finalists for review by a four-person jury and the top-rated film will receive a $5,000 grand prize. The jury will also select a runner-up and third-place winner.

The jury this year includes Hip Hop Architecture Camp Founder Michael Ford, Assoc. AIA; commercial photographer and director Kezi Ban; BOKA Powell Associate Principal and Life of an Architect Creator Bob Borson, FAIA; and AIAS President Sarah Curry, Assoc. AIA.

The deadline for submissions is Aug. 24

In addition to the jury-selected winners, there will also be a public voting period from Aug. 31 to Oct. 4. The film with the most votes will be the People’s Choice winner and receive a $2,000 prize.
