The deadline to enter the Digital Construction Awards has been extended by a week to 5.30pm on Friday 22 March.

The Awards – the Oscars of digital construction – celebrate best practice and reward innovation in the application of BIM, information management and digital technology in the built environment sector.

There are 14 categories, offering opportunities for the entire construction supply chain to compete for a trophy.

But before entering, check out our top tips for entry:

  • Study the criteria closely.
  • There are 14 categories in the Awards: make sure you’re entering the correct one(s).
  • Review who won last year and read about their winning entries to understand what caught the judges’ attention last year.
  • The entry form sets out the story that your entry needs to tell. Answer the questions and provide the information requested.
  • Take the time to draft a formal entry rather than simply uploading content from marketing collateral: your entry will be all the better for this.
  • Use clear, plain English.
  • Jargon: construction is awash with it, but avoid using too much of it in your entry.
  • In the Challenge section, be mindful that as experienced and knowledgeable as the judges are, they may not have heard of your firm or project before. Provide the necessary context.
  • In most categories, the Benefits and Achievements section is worth up to 20 points, so make sure you share detailed results of your work here.
  • Get a colleague to proof your entry before you submit it.

Who are the judges?

The judging panel comprises experts drawn from across the built environment supply chain. Study their profiles closely at They know what’s business as usual and what’s genuinely innovative or effective. Don’t try to dazzle them or pull the wool over their eyes: it won’t work.
