Leading experts from the photography, communication and architecture fields will share their thoughts on getting design projects ready for the awards season.

Organised by AIA New South Wales, the seminar ‘Architecture Awards and the Media: Getting your project awards-ready and leveraging it afterwards’ will be held in Sydney on 9 March, 2017.

Speakers lined up for the CPD event include Richard Glover, architectural photographer; Chris Major, Welsh + Major, 2016 NSW Architecture Awards jury chair, Residential Architecture – Houses; and Helen Tribe from Tribe Communications.

Photographers commissioned by architects to capture images of building and design projects for awards submissions often face challenges on-site. Architectural photographer Richard Glover will explore the process of image-making for awards from briefing the photographer and taking images to impress the jury, to the role of narratives in image compilation and producing for multiple uses.

Glover will also provide useful suggestions on selecting the right photographer for the project; briefing them and preparing the project for a professional shoot; and using the photographs to get noticed by the design-inclined media.

These experts from the worlds of architectural photography, communication, media and architecture will advise participants on getting their project awards-ready, presenting them in the best possible light and then leveraging them to get the next job.

Award-winning architect and 2016 NSW residential jury chair, Chris Major will share her experience both as juror and entrant in the awards process.

Communications expert Helen Tribe will discuss the art of concise communication to help participants prepare a strategic and sophisticated verbal presentation.

The seminar offers three formal CPD points. Units of competency: Practice Management.

The seminar will be held at Tusculum, 3 Manning Street, Potts Point on Thursday 9 March 9:00am - 12:30pm.
