Each state has a Residential and Commercial category with the Professional Award and People’s Choice Award to be won in both categories. The winners of the state Professional Awards will then be judged on a national scale.
Voting for People’s Choice Award opens 1st July 2023 and closes 13th October 2023.
To submit a project, you must first sign up for a Business Account. Once verified and approved, you may begin submitting projects.
Each project needs to be submitted as one entry, not over several entries, regardless of application. For example, if one residential project is submitted in segments, e.g. bathroom and kitchen, this will be rejected. The project must be entered as a whole.
All submitted photography must be of professional quality, high resolution Jpeg (min 1080x1080px and no larger than 10MB) and must not be watermarked. Please see the winners from the polytec Design Awards 2021 for examples of image quality.
Your project may have been rejected due to low image resolution, poor image quality, lacking in information or if no polytec products were evident in the submission. If you believe this was done in error, please contact us.
Your account should take no longer than 1 business day to be approved. If it takes longer than this, please contact us for assistance via online chat.
Project submissions are uncapped, so feel free to upload as many as you like!
