  • National Requirements May Not Align: As an effort to align award standards with National ASLA, we have reformatted our requirements. Please review all new standards for successful uploads and to minimize risk of disqualification.
  • Best Practices: Please keep in mind the best practices for design awards submissions. Although it is up to the jury’s discretion about the success of the project, it is worth noting that projects in the past have been disqualified for the following reasons, and therefore should be considered before applying for the design awards:
    • Tree staking in the landscape
    • Landscaping not being established
    • Poor image composition
    • Too much focus on the architecture
    • Firm or designer’s name or imagery within the submission
  • Image Release: By submitting a project you acknowledge that ASLA Florida has the right to publish the project photographs and names/companies associated with the project, for use in their printed publications, social media, and website and submitters will receive no financial compensation.
  • Collaged Images: Collaged images may be submitted and count as 1 image in the submission if they are essential to capture detail / design elements of the project. The necessity for submitting collaged images remains up to Jury discretion in the review process. Please note that entries in the Research and Communication category allow for page and spread excerpts of planning documents, master plans, etc. to count as 1 collaged image.
  • Unbuilt Project Submissions: Unbuilt submissions that receive an ASLA Florida Design Award will not be able to resubmit for a Design Award once the project is built
Please note, Student Awards will be announced separately.
