Judging will be completed in the six weeks following the competition entry deadline.
Judging panels consist of a minimum of 5 judges which will include the following: an Affiliate Member, a faculty member from a recognized institution, a CDECA Accredited Member, and an independent residential or commercial designer or architect.
Each panel will judge complete categories.
All submissions remain anonymous to the judging panel.
The winners for each category will be announced at the CDECA Annual General Meeting & Awards Gala held April 24th, 2017.
While there are provisions for three winners in each category (Gold, Silver, Bronze), CDECA reserves the right to proclaim ties or not declare winners in any category. If a category has fewer than three entries, CDECA reserves the right to eliminate the category and refund entry fees paid for that category.
