The 2A Continental Architectural Awards (2ACAA) is a stage designed to appreciate the pioneering works of architecture, planning practices, and design. Through the relentless efforts of Ahmad Zohadi, the Award seeks to recognize and encourage architecture concepts that effectively address the needs and objectives of societies – all over the globe.

Organized by the 2A magazine, these prestigious awards work to honour the reputable architects whose design and built work demonstrates a flawless blend of talents, vision as well as commitment. We recognize and appreciate the architects who have worked to produce steady and noteworthy contributions to humankind and the built environment by way of the splendid art of architecture.

“Innovative Contextual Architecture in the Continents.”

This year, the theme of 2ACAA is “Innovative Contextual Architecture in the Continents.” With this theme, we sought to highlight the key issues of sustainability, climate adaptation, as well as the quality of life in architecture. Our vision is to broaden the design language of the architects and encourage them to develop projects that address the issues that are now at the vanguard of universal architectural discussion. Our objective is to inspire designs that will benefit generations to come.

2ACAA 2021: The one-stage entry/two-stage judging process

To make sure that each participant gets the opportunity to present their work fairly and get the acknowledgment it deserves, we have allowed for the project submission in two phases. For the first phase, you may submit your Architecture and design projects for free. Thereafter, a representative member of the jury board would shortlist the optimum projects and declare them as the ‘Candidate’s Projects.’

However, for the second phase, you’ll have to pay the submission fees. Please check the all-inclusive fee below when creating an entry for project submission.

  • 1 Project: € 149
  • 2 Projects: €269
  • 3 Projects: €379

In the second stage, the respected Jury members would choose ultimate winners for each category. This phased project submission process would allow for a better evaluation by the jury members while instilling a fairer competition among participants and their projects.
