It is optional for all categories to submit a detail drawing if needed to give the judges additional information, but scale should also be noted here.
  2. If the photos submitted do not have permission to be published by both the Photographer and the Owner, then the project cannot be entered into Design Ovation.

Submission Guidelines:
Here are the guidelines for submitting your work:

  • If a project has ever received an award in a prior Design Ovation or Legacy of Design competition, it cannot be resubmitted. An award includes all categories from First Place to Honorable Mention.
  • If a project has been previously submitted to a prior Design Ovation or Legacy of Design and was not awarded in any category at any level, First through Honorable mention, then it can be resubmitted.
  • If a project has won other awards through non-ASID design competitions such as SubZero-Wolf, NKBA, NARI, etc. it may be submitted, as long as it meets the above requirements.
  • If a project has been published, it can be submitted into Design Ovation if it meets the above requirements.

PHOTOGRAPHY / DRAWINGS

  1. A PDF of a floor plan, including furnishings in a 1/4” or 1/8” scaled floor plan of the area being entered must be submitted with the entry. The maximum PDF upload size is 10MB. There should be no dimensions, with the exception of Universal Design, dimensions must be present. Furniture must be to scale and rooms must be labeled either by hand drafted architectural lettering or typed. The scale must be indicated on the drawing. It is optional for all categories to submit a detail drawing if needed to give the judges additional information, but scale should also be noted here.
  2. If the photos submitted do not have permission to be published by both the Photographer and the Owner, then the project cannot be entered into Design Ovation.
  3. A minimum of 2 and a maximum of 10 each, 8.5" x 11" high resolution (300 dpi required) images (.jpg) may be included with each entry. The maximum photo upload size is 3MB for each photo. At least one "before" photo is required and should reflect the same view as at least one "after" photo. If the project is new construction, it is recommended to include a before photo, but you will not be penalized if one is not available. Be sure to clearly mark which photos are "before" vs. "after".
  4.

  • Not completing all the information, as in leaving any section of the project description blank. Again, our judges need the full story to adequately score your entries. Final scores will reflect the lack of completion.
  • Permission forms are required. If they are not completed or included, the project will be disqualified.

Submission Guidelines:
Here are the guidelines for submitting your work:

  • If a project has ever received an award in a prior Design Ovation or Legacy of Design competition, it cannot be resubmitted. An award includes all categories from First Place to Honorable Mention.
  • If a project has been previously submitted to a prior Design Ovation or Legacy of Design and was not awarded in any category at any level, First through Honorable mention, then it can be resubmitted.
  • If a project has won other awards through non-ASID design competitions such as SubZero-Wolf, NKBA, NARI, etc. it may be submitted, as long as it meets the above requirements.
  • If a project has been published, it can be submitted into Design Ovation if it meets the above requirements.

PHOTOGRAPHY / DRAWINGS

  1. A PDF of a floor plan, including furnishings in a 1/4” or 1/8” scaled floor plan of the area being entered must be submitted with the entry. The maximum PDF upload size is 10MB. There should be no dimensions, with the exception of Universal Design, dimensions must be present. Furniture must be to scale and rooms must be labeled either by hand drafted architectural lettering or typed. The scale must be indicated on the drawing. It is optional for all categories to submit a detail drawing if needed to give the judges additional information, but scale should also be noted here.
  2. If the photos submitted do not have permission to be published by both the Photographer and the Owner, then the project cannot be entered into Design Ovation.
  3. A maximum of 10 each, 8.5" x 11" high resolution (300 dpi required) images (.jpg) may be included with each entry. The maximum photo upload size is 3MB for each photo. At least one "before" photo is required and should reflect the same view as at least one "after" photo. If the project is new construction, it is recommended to include a before photo, but you will not be penalized if one is not available. Be sure to clearly mark which photos are "before" vs. "after".
  4. No identification of designer, firm or project shall be visible on uploaded photography and/or drawings (including file names), including designer name / firm name and respective logos, trademarks, etc. However, in commercial design categories, it is acceptable for company / client logos and signage to appear in photographs. Entries failing to follow instructions will be disqualified.

Please be sure to download, complete and upload all necessary permission forms for your entry. Downloadable forms can be found in the Permission Forms page in the Menu after logging in.

COMMON MISTAKES TO AVOID

  • The floor plans submitted must be to scale at 1/8” or 1/4”. Listing NTS on your floor plans means your drawings will not be acceptable and your score will be reduced.
  • Before photos are required in all Residential projects, unless they are entered in the new construction categories. Commercial renovation projects must also include a before photo. The lack of inclusion of a photo will reduce the overall score.
  • Not completing all the information, as in leaving any section of the project description blank. Again, our judges need the full story to adequately score your entries. Final scores will reflect the lack of completion.
  • Permission forms are required. If they are not completed or included, the project will be disqualified.
