Call for Submission - UIA Architecture & Children Golden Cubes Awards 2020-2023 (Deadline Exended)
Overseas, Competition

Updates on 18 January 2023: 

The HKIA Submission Deadline has been extended to 13 February 2023 (Monday) 23:59 HKT.  Interested parties are encouraged to submit their projects to HKIA by the deadline. 

The UIA Architecture & Children Work Programme is now launching its fifth cycle of the triennial Golden Cubes Awards for the year 2020-2023. The Awards honors people and organisations that help children and young people to develop a better understanding of architecture and the built environment.

Candidates are invited to submit entries describing activities (courses, classes, events, etc.) or products (publications, tools, games, kits, guides, films, computer programmes, etc.) designed to teach children and young people, from pre-school up to and including the age of 18, about architectural design the built environment.

The UIA Architecture & Children Golden Cubes Awards process is not a ‘competition’ for which entrants are expected to produce new projects. Instead, they are invited to present submissions relating to an activity which is currently active, or an event which has taken place or a product that has been produced at any time between March 2020 and 15 March 2023. 

Four Award Categories:

  1. School Award (non-vocational schools)
  2. Institution Award (organisations, associations, museums, vocational schools etc.)
  3. Written Media Award (books, magazines, non-audio-visual educational tools, articles, etc.)
  4. Audio-visual Media Award (films, audio-visual educational material, documentaries, etc.)

The Award Process has two phases: (1) National and (2) International.

In the first phase, each UIA National Member Section (including HKIA) participating in the Award will organise a selection process at National level and nominate one entry for each category to the International Awards.

In the second phase the International Jury will evaluate the Nominated Entries and select one UIA Architecture & Children Golden Cubes Award in each category.

This cycle will be entirely digital on international level.
