I applied for the 2017 Residential Architect Design Awards. Can I use the same login?

Yes! Please use the same email you used for your last application and click the “forgot password” button if you can’t remember your password. If the person who applied for the last program is no longer with the company, please create a new account.


Will I get emails confirming my registration and submission?

Yes. Please add digitalawards@hanleywood.com to your safe senders list. If you have not received those emails, please check your spam/junk folder.


My company is outside of the US. Can I submit a project for the awards?

Yes! Companies outside the US, or companies who completed international projects, are eligible for RADA.


How many projects can I enter for the awards?

You can enter as many projects as you want! Just remember you will need to pay a registration fee for each.


Do I have to mail any physical materials?

No. Please upload all materials to radesignawards.com.


Is my application fee per-project?

Yes. If you decide to submit two projects, for example, you will pay the entry fee twice.


Why do I have two separate entries in my account for the same project?

The Residential Architect Design Awards has a three-step application process: registration (minor project information and fee payment), project information (uploading materials), and submission (finalize and submit your entries). The registration and project information will each appear individually on your dashboard along with that step’s status and submission date.


How can I tell if I have fully submitted my application?

The application will show up in the COMPLETE section of your dashboard. PLEASE NOTE: In order to fully submit your application, you will need to go through the second payment wall at the end of the submission materials section.


I was registering my project, but the system asked me to pay my fee before I could upload images. Where do I upload images?

You must register and pay your entrance fee before you can upload your project images and description. Once you pay your fee, you will be taken to the rest of your application.


Can I register and pay for my entry fee by the early bird deadline of August 31, 2018, but upload my materials after that date?

Yes, but please know that if you submit all or part of your submission after August 31, you will need to pay the $50 late fee.


Can I mention the names of my company, contractors, and consultants in the project description?

No. No identifying information can be included in any part of your application (project name, description, on plans, etc.).


How long should my project narrative be? 

Though there is no set minimum or maximum, we request that your narrative be around 500 words.


How many total photos can I submit? 

You can submit as many photos of your project as the form allows.


Can I submit more than one image of the project in the same file?

No. Please do not combine more than one image in the same JPG file; upload single images only. Our judges want to be able to see your remodels in as much detail as possible


What format should my images be?

All images must be in JPG format.


Can I have a refund on my submissions?

We’re sorry, but no. No refunds will be issued. Please be sure to review all eligibility guidelines before submitting a project. If you still aren’t sure whether you qualify, please email rada@hanleywood.com.


Can I submit my product to the Residential Architect Design Awards?

No. Unfortunately, RADA does not accept products as applicants. Please check out Architect's Product Call.


My question isn’t here. Whom should I contact?

Please email our staff at rada@hanleywood.com.
