AWARD QUESTIONS

Will you organize a winning ceremony?

We decided not to organize a winning ceremony or an award gala. We believe that all the galas and events are incredibly nice but they make the awards extremely expensive for all the participants. Our team decided to focus on what is more important: the projects. So we decided to create a more affordable and accessible award that many studios may participate in and share their projects.

How are the winners announced?

All the winners are going to be announced online in LOOP Design Awards website – www.loopdesignawards.com – and also through all our social platforms and media partners. Also, all the voting process is going to happen online in a dedicated platform and it will be an easy and simple process.

Can I submit more than 5 projects?

Of course! You can submit as many projects as you want and find suitable. Although our Nomination Packs are limited to five entries, we can easily customize if you want to add more than five projects. Please contact our support team to help you with this request: support@loopdesignawards.com

ABOUT LOOP DESIGN AWARDS

Who is LOOP Design Awards Team?

LOOP Design Awards Team was created by a small group of low-profile architects, designers, researchers, photographers, and artists spread all across the globe.  Together, we decided to create a new design award mainly focused on the projects and not on profit or commercial purposes only. All our team members are based in different countries such as Angola, USA, Italy, Portugal, Brasil, and Japan and because of this, we had very different background experiences while creating the platform.

Where is this new award from?

LOOP Design Award does not have a geographic base – All our team is based in different countries and we collaborate online – Angola, USA, Italy, Portugal, Brasil, and Japan – Let’s say we are global 😉

When was LOOP Design Awards created?

LOOP Design Awards was officially created in March 2020, although our team started to plan and work together back in 2019.
