The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has launched its fourth annual film challenge as part of the AIA's "Blueprint for Better" campaign, an initiative that highlights the collaborative work of architects and civic leaders to solve some of the biggest issues facing cities today.
Participants in the film challenge should produce, shoot and edit a three to five-minute documentary to tell a story about architects working with civic and community leaders to make a positive impact on their cities and towns.
"Architects are committed to solving some of the most pressing issues of our time. This challenge gives filmmakers the opportunity to showcase how civic leaders are looking to architects to solve critical problems," said AIA EVP and Chief Executive Officer, Robert Ivy, FAIA. "AIA is thrilled to launch this installment of the film challenge. We hope it generates awareness around the talent and important work architects bring to our communities."
Submissions for the film challenge is due by August 27. The first round of winners will be selected by a panel of jurors from the media, architecture and film industries. A second round will be open for public voting to choose the "People's Choice Winner."
