JUDGING

The juries

Our list of jurors consists of a wide variety of esteemed industry professionals, educators, influencers and editors who are devoted to creative professionals, marketing communications, interior design, architecture, and property development.

Judging criteria

Judging is blind. All entrant information is removed from entries to prevent bias/conflict of interest. Judges score on a scale of 1-100, based on the below criteria.

Each entry is evaluated on its own merit. It is not competing against other entries. The jury panel evaluates entries based on its creativity, form and function. The project needs to be clear on its relationship to its environment, its users, and its purpose. Creativity is not enough to be convincing; it needs to show useful function and provide a better living experience for its users, meeting the clients’ expectation. Projects that demonstrate innovation and embracing new technologies, setting new trends, respecting the environment, and pushing boundaries of human ingenuity. Projects with high regard to sustainable building practises and the protection and preservation of the environment will also earn special attention from the jury.

Entries receiving an average score under 50 do not receive an award.

The TITAN Property Awards and International Awards Associate’s decision are final in its sole discretion and binding in relation to all matters relating to Competitions and may not be subject to any discussions or correspondence.

WINNERS

How do we choose TITAN Property Awards winners?

Submissions are judged at random without comparison to others in a category. Each project is evaluated on criteria determined by the requirements (see Judging Criteria). Individual are not compared to group in the same category.

To ensure high standards of high quality, a category may have multiple winners or no winners. Work is critiqued rated by consensus, with the panel of judges determining a rating on a scale of 100 points. Winners with a score between 85 and 100 points are Platinum Winners. Projects with a score between 60 and 84 points are Gold Winners.

One of the Highest score Platinum winners* for each main category will be selected as the Category Winner.

Projects receiving an average score under 60 do not receive an award.

Levels of winning and number of winning entries

There are THREE (3) levels of achievement in the competition:

  • Category Winners of the Year (Only ONE highest score from each category will be recognized.)
  • Platinum - Average scores between 85 - 100

Why must winner’s trophies be purchased?

The TITAN Property Awards’ mission is to recognize outstanding achievement in firms that otherwise are overshadowed by large firms' budgets, which dominate other property awards programs.

The affordable submission fees allow start-ups, one-person firms and young individuals the opportunity to enter, as well as all entrepreneurs from countries where the exchange rate or the economic conditions would otherwise make entering impossible.

If an entrant is recognized as a winner, there is no additional fee. Many other awards programs charge an acceptance fee. With TITAN Property Awards, once you've won, you've won; there is no additional fee.

If a winner decides to purchase a statuette, the TITAN Property Awards makes them available by ordering them from our manufacturer. This offering process allows the Awards to maintain low entry fees and prevent non-winner’s subsidy of winners.

Some winners choose not to receive a physical memento. Their priority is the prestige of recognition and the exposure the comes with it. Others choose to order statuettes for individuals on their team as well as their client. It's all up to the winners!

Statuette shipping time

Winner awards are custom-made. Statuettes will ship directly from the manufacturer. Please allow 8-12 weeks for the statuettes. Shipping time may be longer during off-season. Statuettes may be ordered from our online store once winners are announced.

Scam warning: Important information

There are many people and groups that attempt to obtain your money or personal information inappropriately through fraudulent means. Often, these people and groups misrepresent who they are in an effort to deceive you about the legitimacy of what they are claiming. Sometimes, although not always, they will claim that you have won a lottery or sweepstakes and ask that you send them money so that they can release your supposed winnings to you. In such a situation, you should be very careful and fully investigate any and all claims before you send any money. Please be aware that there are many scams that use SMS/e-mail in an attempt to defraud people using methods similar to these, and we warn strongly against your responding to this type of SMS/e-mail without rigorous investigation to establish whether it is of a genuine nature. Generally, you should treat unsolicited communication (e-mail, phone and letters) that offer financial gain with extreme suspicion; be aware that legitimate lotteries rarely, if ever, ask for a fee to release your winnings; you should not pay any requested fee in advance without fully investigating the matter; and you should not provide banking details or other sensitive financial information in response to emails, phone inquiries and letters without a thorough investigation. In recent years we have been aware of instances of individuals and fraudulent organizations that have been sending notices to people falsely claiming that the recipients have won a lottery. These notices falsely claim to be from IAA (MUSE CREATIVE AWARDS, MUSE DESIGN AWARDS, MUSE PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS, NYX AWARDS,LIT AWARDS,TITAN AWARDS, VEGA DIGITAL AWARDS) and even have the name and contact information of IAA (MUSE CREATIVE AWARDS, MUSE DESIGN AWARDS, MUSE PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS, NYX AWARDS,LIT AWARDS,TITAN AWARDS, VEGA DIGITAL AWARDS) employees along with IAA (MUSE CREATIVE AWARDS, MUSE DESIGN AWARDS, MUSE PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS, NYX AWARDS,LIT AWARDS,TITAN AWARDS, VEGA DIGITAL AWARDS) branding. These notices are completely fraudulent, cleverly designed to trick people into sending money for prizes they will never receive. IAA (MUSE CREATIVE AWARDS, MUSE PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS, NYX AWARDS, LIT AWARDS,TITAN AWARDS,VEGA DIGITAL AWARDS) is NOT AND HAS NEVER RUN a sweepstake, a lottery OR ANY FORM OF CONTEST OF THESE KINDS and has never asked anyone to wire money to redeem a prize. Please do not respond to any SMS, email, or any other means of communication claiming that you have won a prize. If you have any question as to the validity of an offer, please contact us at iaa@iaaawards.org / info@musecreativeawards.com / info@musephotographyawards.com / info@museaward.com / info@nyxawards.com / info@vegaawards.com/ info@littalentawards.com.
