WA Awards 34th Cycle Deadline Extended To May 20

World Architecture Community has extended entry deadline to WA Awards 10+5+X 34th Cycle until May 20, 2020. Due to the difficult times that the architecture profession and all industries have been affected by the global pandemic, the organization board of the WA Awards 10+5+X has decided to extend entry deadline for the 34th Cycle. 

This will be the last extension to showcase your work on the well-reputed and acclaimed WA Awards 10+5+X. This gives you an extra one month to send your submissions and get the recognition it deserves!

World Architecture Community's WA Awards 10+5+X 34th Cycle competition is open to all architects, interior designers and students to submit their entries until May 20, 2020 (at 23:59 GMT). WA Awards 10+5+X is organized as an online awards program running roughly for 3 cycles per year, it doesn't hold a physical gathering.

"As a whole world, we are having unprecedented times. Although valued followers and members of WAC do not leave us alone in this time of crisis, we know that this global pandemic has had a radical impact in the architecture profession and all components of the industry, starting from daily meetings, technical organizations to determining new economic models within the office," said Berrin Chatzi Chousein, editor-in-chief of WAC. 

"For this reason, we have decided to extend the 34th Cycle deadline for WAC followers and members to be able to make their plans more comfortably in one month."
