Judges have selected our winners!

Our judges Gregory, Michael and David have made their selections and winners have been announced! See the results of both Winners and Finalists here. There were so many great entries and a fine line between all levels of winners. We wish we could have fit all the images on one page but we couldn’t do it without compromising page load times. Please know that we recognize the quality of all our award winners. Prizes will arrive soon!

A Letter from our Executive Director, Tom Kennedy

Dear ASMP Spaces Participants,

I want to thank those of you who have already entered ASMP Spaces 2018! We have an impressive group of entries!

We have assembled a distinguished panel of judges and we want them to be dazzled! Your participation in this contest means your work will be seen by Gregory Usewicz of BHNT Architects, Michael Conroe of Architectural Resources, and David Seide of Defined Space (see their full bios below).

Although we are confident that ASMP members will be well represented in contest results, this contest is open to members and non-members. Please help us spread the word by sharing a link to this page!

Wondering why we are charging contest entry fees? Charging contest fees allows us to subsidize the software platform we use to manage contest entries and our communication with submitters, as well as provide us with sophisticated judging functionality. We also believe in compensating our judges with an honorarium to both acknowledge their time and the level of expertise they bring to the contest. Finally, all remaining proceeds from our contests go toward supporting ASMP’s education and advocacy initiatives that ultimately benefit us all.
