AJ Small Projects is back. Architects, show us what you've got

Open to projects with a contract value of £250,000 or less. Deadline is 19 November

The deadline for entries is 19 November. Visit for more details and email Tom Ravenscroft at with any questions

Tight budgets are no barrier to creative thinking, and AJ Small Projects is your annual chance to show the world what you can design and deliver on a contract budget of £250,000 or less.

All shortlisted entries will feature in two special January issues of the AJ and at a popular exhibition at the NLA, and shortlisted candidates will be invited to present their work in front of a jury that includes a prominent architect and a client. All entries will also be published in the AJ Buildings Library – valuable publicity for your practice. Don’t forget the Sustainability Award: now in its fourth year: the emphasis is on great design underpinned, but not undermined, by green thinking.

‘We look forward to seeing this year’s entrants,’ said Paul Reed, sales and marketing director at Marley Eternit. ‘Marley Eternit are proud to support the AJ Small Project Awards for the third year. These awards allow practices to demonstrate their creativity and be rewarded for their originality.

‘We have all faced budget constraints in recent times but these awards show the wealth of creative talent out there that’s bringing design excellence to projects, regardless of their size and scope.’

To enter the competition, your project should have a total contract value of less than £250,000 and have been completed between 1 January 2011 and 1 November 2012. You will need to submit a 150-word text describing your project, along with at least eight photographs, five drawings and one working detail. There is a £50 entry fee.

The deadline for entries is 19 November. Visit for more details and email Tom Ravenscroft at with any questions
