The CHBA-ER Awards judges will view and judge all submissions online. They rely 100% on the information you provide in your answers to the online entry questions, along with photographs, drawings and other materials that you upload.
The competition is blind in all categories. Home builders and renovators are required to remove any reference to their company in all images and floor plans.
Entries will be judged according to the criteria (answers to questions, images, uploaded plans, etc.) set out for each award.
Entries will be handled in a confidential manner. Judges agree not to disclose information concerning entries.
All information submitted online is considered complete. Incomplete entries will not be disqualified due to insufficient information and materials, however may result in a deficient evaluation. Entrants will not be notified of missing components.
A minimum of THREE entries (from two different companies) are required to stage a competition in each category. Entries may be moved (up or down) into a different category should the category receive less than three submissions.
Submissions are reviewed for accuracy. A Cost Review Committee may request additional documentation for verification.
All decisions of the judges are final.
