National Landscape Architecture Awards provides a key vehicle for the promotion
of the achievements and work of landscape architects in Australia.
2014 & 2015, AILA undertook a significant review of its awards categories,
objectives and criteria, as well as other aspects of the overall program - to
ensure that the program celebrates the depth of practice and contribution of
the profession to society. The new program, termed “The AILA National Landscape
Architecture Awards”, has been developed after extensive research, multiple
consultation rounds, and much discussion with members across many platforms
around the country.
The main document to help you understand the new program is the Entry Guide. The second document is the WA Submission Requirements. Additional to this, we have provided the Jurors Guide which elaborates further on the judging process, however this is written for prospective jurors. Finally the Product Description form (word format) that is required as part of your submission.

the structure of the program is:
- The AILA National Landscape
Architecture Awards has two stages, both occurring annually.
- The first is a chapter/state
program, followed by the second being the national program.
- The state awards are held first, and the national awards follow.
- Those projects awarded an
Award of Excellence and a Landscape Architecture Award at state level
proceed automatically through to the national awards later that same year -
no separate re-submission or fee is required.
- All entries are to be
entered directly into their state awards, there are no direct entries to
national awards EXCEPT those to the international category.
- Projects must be entered in
the state where the project is located.
- The Jury will be selected
before the entries are called for.
- Projects can be entered in
as many categories as the entrant wishes. A fee is required for each
- Projects are eligible to be
entered into the awards for an unlimited period and can be entered in
multiple years if unsuccessful.
