The Council initiates its call for awards at the beginning of each year and receives submissions on a rolling basis through the first quarter. After submissions are closed, a first round of judging occurs, in which Award of Excellence and Lifetime Achievement winners are selected and notified. The number of awardees is dynamic and will depend on the total strength of submissions for the category. The Award of Excellence winners go on to present their projects at the CTBUH International Conference before an audience of conference delegates and live juries. Following these presentations, juries will select an overall winner for each category. Delegates will also have the opportunity to vote for an Audience Award winner for each category. There is no cost to submit a project for consideration.

All projects participating in the awards program are also featured in CTBUH’s Tall Buildings + Urban Habitat publication, an annual compendium highlighting the year’s most innovative and pioneering projects. The book is published by CTBUH and distributed internationally each year thus providing excellent promotion for the submitted projects and companies involved. The content of the book is driven by the awards submissions and launched during the Conference.
