TRANSFER Architecture

Architecture Video Award 2019


The TRANSFER Architecture Video Award is an independent award, to be launched in 2019, to recognize the most creative and innovative short films in the field of architecture, city or landscape worldwide. With the TRANSFER Architecture Video Award, we aim to highlight the contributions that best represent new means of knowledge and analysis of architecture using video as a support


The main criteria are the work’s contribution to exploring innovative ways of analyzing and experiencing architecture, city or landscape, the relevance of the topic and its social impact, and a high standard of production. Short films must have a maximum duration of 5 minutes and must have been produced within the past four years (2015-2019).


The award is global in scope and open to filmmakers, architects, artists, photographers or any individual or group whose video work is related with architecture, city or landscape.


The Award winner and honorable mentions will receive a TRANSFER Architecture Video Award 2019 certificate. They will be published on the TRANSFER Global Architecture Platform and be presented in a public event in November 2019.
