BLT Built Design Awards Gala at the KKL Luzern in Switzerland

Winning The BLT Built Design Awards is a well-recognized badge of excellence amongst clients and peers.

Why Should You Register?

The BLT Built Design Awards is one of the most comprehensive annual awards dedicated to architecture and construction. BLT Built Design Awards has four programs: Architecture — Interior Design —  Landscape Architecture — Construction Product and this allows every successful company, located anywhere in the world, to enter diverse and excellent projects to this prestigious award.

There are major synergies between Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Interior Design, and Construction Products,  joining and winning The BLT Awards ensures that your project, product, or software will be presented widely, across the larger industry.

Brand Differentiation

Our award is designed to set the winners apart from their competitors; by carefully selecting the category you enter, your project, design or innovation concept can firmly establish itself in a strong niche. The BLT Built Design Award is both an independent endorsement of your project and an outstanding indicator of success.

Marketing Opportunities

The benefits of winning our award extend to excellent PR opportunities before, during, and after the award event itself. The BLT Awards winners have a range of opportunities to improve their brand awareness and The BLT Awards actively supports the promotion of your business to architecture, design, and construction professionals and potential new clients worldwide.

Our team has strong relationships with all the major design-related media, maximizing your company’s rate of PR exposure.

After winning, make sure to update your marketing materials with our BLT logo, and ensure you add ‘Award-Winning’ to your project description — on your website, your business cards, email signature, social media, and sales material, for example.

Sharing your win with the world is important, and sharing what your business has achieved through all your hard work is exciting and fun — you deserve this.


Being awarded with a BLT Built Design Award win or Honorable Mention acts as a 3rd-party endorsement of your business and design achievements. Our winning badge is a sign of quality for potential customers and a great way of differentiating your company from competitors — and can form a strong part of your sales strategy.

Team Appreciation 

Winning a prize or receiving BLT Honorable Mention is a very public way of recognizing the hard work and achievements of your staff. Awards should be celebrated as a team to boost morale.

Attracting Talents

Due to its very public nature, winning a BLT Built Design Award prize, or receiving an Honorable Mention, serves as an excellent way to recognize the hard work and achievements of your staff. Your win can be celebrated together and is the perfect way to boost morale: everybody likes to be on a winning team!

How to promote your award-winning company?

Print your certificate and winner badge, add them on your website, share with your community on social media, website, and direct marketing.

Add the Winner badge on your establishment/ company communication collaterals and brochures. This is a fantastic marketing opportunity.

Issue a Press Release and send it to your local media and/ or communication agency. BLT will also publish the official winners’ press release on the BLT Awads website.

Add your winner badge to your email signature — your email signature is seen every day, by many people who may not know about your award. Just by adding a statement that says ‘Winner of the (year) (Award Name)’ is a powerful marketing technique, turning every outgoing email into a testament to your achievement.

Involve your team — by sharing your achievement, your sales and marketing team not only boost their own morale but also pass on the joy of your win with all their contacts and clients. Happiness is infectious, and sharing the results of your hard work is a perfect example: everybody is glad to hear the news.

Consider an advertisement. It is a common business technique to take out an advert to call attention to an awards win. Some companies also use this opportunity to congratulate fellow winners — sharing their joy.

As soon as you are a winner in the BLT Built Design Awards, that stays with you — the ability to add ‘award winning’ to all company descriptions cannot be understated, and it is a benefit that never ends.

To conclude, an industry-recognized award serves as a powerful independent endorsement of your company’s quality. Winning the BLT Built Design Award is a serious competitive advantage and, more importantly, it is an evaluation that will bolster potential customers’ trust —  especially when coupled with your own internal marketing material.
