ICONIC AWARDS 2020: Innovative Architecture – Call for entries

The registration phase for the international ICONIC AWARDS 2020: Innovative Architecture has started. These awards recognise the crème de la crème of architecture and innovative interior and product design, as well as outstanding communication concepts and singularly innovative materials. The winners will be honoured at the awards ceremony on 5 October 2020 at the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, where they will have ample opportunity to network with other players on both the national and international scene.


The awards are open to architects, engineers, specialist planners, agencies and design firms, construction companies and real estate businesses, as well as manufacturers from the design and production sectors – projects must be submitted by 15 May. The high profile jury are responsible for awarding the “Selection”, “Winner” and “Best of Best” titles, as well as the special endowed awards “Architects of the Year” and “Interior Designers of the Year” (each with a cash prize of Euro 10,000), and the honorary prize “Architects’ Client of the Year”.


Attaining one of these awards puts the winner’s work on a global platform for all to see, positioning them as successful players on an international footing – and assures them a place at the prestigious awards ceremony, to be held in Munich during the EXPO Real.
