Please Note: Acknowledging the collaborative tendency of architecture studios in academic settings, In Studio Competitions are open to both individual work as well as group work. If an AIAS member chooses to submit a project, image, model, or sketch to any of the AIAS InStudio Competitions that was the product of more than one individual, it is important that all participants are aware of the submission and that their names are included in the associated description. Prior to submission, all individuals that contributed to the work being entered must come to a consensus regarding the allocation of the potential prize funds. Ideally, group submissions would donate their winning funds to their AIAS Chapter or split the funds equally. If an entry is chosen as a competition winner, the prize funds will be issued to the individual that submitted said work to distribute in accordance with their pre-determined distribution plan.
