Best Short Clip

Judges want to see clever ways architects are using video up to two minutes and thirty seconds in length to showcase their work.
Now that platforms like TikTok, Instagram Reels and LinkedIn have expanded their short-term offerings, short-form video has become a low-commitment and engaging way for practices to connect with their audience.
The category is open to architects and other built environment professionals, so long as architecture is the main subject. Up to three videos can be submitted made between autumn 2022 and February ’24.
If your video is longer than two minutes thirty seconds please enter the Best Use of Video category.
