10UP Competition

Residential & Hospitality Design Awards

In 2022, AIA Atlanta reintroduced its former Residential Design Awards program as the Residential & Hospitality Design Awards (RHDA), adding restaurant and hotel projects for the first time.

Over nine years, the program has seen hundreds of submissions spanning from the Nantahala National Forest in North Carolina to the mountains in Mexico. The newly revamped initiative will receive submissions again in August 2023, accepting built projects designed by Georgia architects and located anywhere in the world.

Entries must have been completed between January 1, 2020, and October 1, 2023, and commissioned with the entrant holding the primary design responsibility. The jury confers prizes of the Honor Award and/or the Merit Award, the former being the highest recognition.
