The James M. Scott Exceptional Design Awards program (formerly the Fairfax County Exceptional Design Awards) is now accepting entries.

The awards, judged by a jury, include honor awards, merit awards and honorable mentions. Nominations can be submitted in many categories including but not limited to residential, commercial, industrial, institutional, historical and interiors. All entries should exemplify a superior work of architecture; incorporate total site design and landscaping; take into account the context of the work in relationship to its surroundings; or apply energy and water conservation and other green building practices.

Celebrating its 35th anniversary, the program is sponsored by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and administered by the Fairfax County Department of Planning and Zoning, in cooperation with the county’s Architectural Review Board and the Northern Virginia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

Eligible projects submitted to the AIA Northern Virginia Design Awards will be automatically forwarded to Fairfax County.
