All projects must meet the eligibility criteria established for the current Award cycle. As noted above, architects and others associated with projects are welcome to recommend their own works.
A parallel programme called “Nomination” is conducted by the Award Office and draws on the suggestions provided by a network of dedicated contacts that includes architects, professionals, scholars and others who are familiar with current architectural developments in Muslim societies.
The architects of projects enrolled through the nomination programme receive an Award documentation package that describes the standardized presentation requirements. In addition to submitting photographs, slides and architectural drawings, architects are asked to complete a detailed questionnaire pertaining to use, cost, environmental and climatic factors, construction materials, building schedule, structural integrity and ongoing maintenance, and, more importantly, design concepts and each project's significance within its own context.
