  • “Award of Excellence” winners are expected to comply with the following responsibilities:
    • Representatives of the project (for Best Tall Building, Urban Habitat, 10 Year, Interior Design and Renovation categories, this must be both the owner/developer and design architect/urban planner/interior architect) must present at the conference for consideration of also winning the category overall and Audience Awards.

The book is published by CTBUH and distributed globally, thus providing excellent promotion for the submitted projects and companies involved.
  • While it is typical that most submissions are included in the publication, CTBUH reserves the right to determine that a project will not be included for reasons that include, but are not limited to: a project does not meet the eligibility requirements for inclusion; appropriate, high resolution images were not provided in the submission; the project was submitted for multiple award categories and will only be included in the book once, etc.
  • Right to Usage of Materials: All submitted text, images, and drawings are provided with the understanding that they may be used in CTBUH’s Tall Buildings + Urban Habitat publication, as well as on the CTBUH website, press releases, award announcements, and other means of publicity for the purpose of promoting the awards events and “Award of Excellence” winners and Overall Category Winners. This includes the building’s profile page on the CTBUH database, as well as future use in CTBUH publications. Copyright clearance and payment of any fees for artwork is to be organized by the submitter prior to submission.
