Show off your best work. The AEC Excellence Awards 2017 competition is now open for submissions!

AEC Excellence Awards spotlight the world’s best AEC projects.  First introduced in 2012 to recognize BIM in Infrastructure projects, this world-renowned competition now also includes Building, Construction, and Sustainability categories that showcase innovations using connected BIM workflows and Autodesk software.  You can see the range of submissions and projects represented in the 2016 winning projects, many of which were completed using Revit.

You know, the ones you’re most excited about, like projects that use augmented reality, virtual reality, drones, generative design, computational design, and more—in short, your best design efforts using BIM workflows and Autodesk technology!
