The SARA PA Council's Annual Design Awards

Architect's Studio Postponed.jpg

Due to a convergence of events and hang-ups during the planning of this year's reception, the design awards committee decided the best course of action was to postpone the reception. Mark February 15th on your calendars as the new date of the design awards reception.

In addition to postponing the reception, judging of this year's submissions was also postponed. We would like to extend an offer to anyone who missed the previous submission deadlines to still enter this year's design awards by reopening the registration for professionals and students. If you would like more information, please email
