Outstanding Achievement Award

Each year, we honor and recognize outstanding achievement in practice, education, and/or scholarship.

Deadline: February 15th

About the Awards Program

The purpose of the ACSF Award for Outstanding Achievement is to recognize, celebrate, and raise public awareness of exceptional work in architecture, landscape architecture, art, design, urbanism, planning, and related fields such as theology, anthropology, archeology, philosophy, and social sciences.

Awardees are selected for their seminal professional, educational, or scholarly contributions in these areas as they align with the mission of the ACSF. Awardees may be at any point in their careers and from any country.

Rules & Regulations

Nominations for the annual Award for Outstanding Achievement can be made by ACSF members and non-members alike before the deadline of February 15 each year. Nominations made after the deadline will be considered for the following year’s award program. Posthumous and self-nominations are not permitted.

Nominees for the award will be reviewed by the ACSF Awards Committee, a standing committee of five ACSF members (members rotate off the committee at three-year intervals). At least one but no more than two members of the ACSF Board of Directors will serve on the Awards Committee. Decisions are final and will be made by simple majority vote. The Awards Committee may recommend no recognition if it so chooses. The Awardee will be announced publicly at a date to be determined, and the Award will be bestowed to the Awardee at the annual ACSF Symposium.
