Best Written Content

The best written content should be engaging, insightful and inclusive whether it’s an opinion piece, research, publicising a new building or giving an insight into the personalities of the team.

Judges are keen to see writing that is throwing light on subjects in a direct, clear and concise style.

Finally, they would like to know how your content is being promoted so that it’s driving traffic to your website.

Content must have been created between summer 2020 and summer 2021.

Please note – the category is open to engineers, interior designers and others who work alongside architects so long as architecture and design is included as part of the content offer.
