NATSPEC Student Prize opens for 2023

Registrations for the 2023 NATSPEC Student Prize are now open for eligible university students.
In this year’s brief, the NATSPEC Student Prize challenges Master of Architecture students to explore the ways in which architects control and communicate the quality and performance of innovative design in construction.
The competition emphasises NATSPEC’s objective to improve the quality of construction in Australia and mitigate the negative impact of the construction industry on climate change.
Entries are accepted from students who are enrolled at an Australian university in a Master of Architecture course accredited by the AACA. Students can enter individually or in teams of up to four members.
An independent jury will select the winner, who will receive a prize of $8,000. Their work will be published on the NATSPEC website. Two entries will receive a Commendation award of $1,500 each.
‘What a Waste,’ last year’s Highly Commended entry by Mitchell Pianto of the University of Melbourne, is available to view on the NATSPEC website.
The closing date for submissions is midnight AWST on Monday 4 December.
