The award recognises the role and contribution of people who: bring architecture to the attention of the general public, create awareness of architectural practices in Australia, generate quality public debate about architectural issues, and provide information for relevant professionals and specialists in the areas of architecture, interior design and environmental design.
Entries close Monday 31 March at 7pm. All submissions must have been broadcast or published in Victoria between 31 March 2013 and 30 March 2014.
Winners will be announced on 20 June at a presentation event held in Melbourne in collaboration with the 2014 Victorian Architecture Awards.
