About Competitions



The Competition Project, Inc. founded in 1986, is a pioneering, non-profit corporation which serves as a clearinghouse for information and ideas on design competitions, both in the United States and abroad. From 1991 to 2010, it was the publisher of COMPETITIONS, a quarterly magazine dealing exclusively with design competitions on an international scale and having a world-wide circulation. Since January 2011, the Competition Project has been publishing a monthly COMPETITIONS E-zine, reviewing past competitions and announcing upcoming design competitions in architecture, landscape architecture and planning. It is supplemented by instant email notices about results and new competitions as we hear about them. Subscribers may also receive a comprehensive yearly publication, COMPETITIONS Annual, in print format and a very affordable option as part of a subscription package. This provides our subscribers with a handy reference source on past competitions, which have been covered by the E-zine over the course of the year.

In some cases, we can also provide assistance in the preliminary planning and organization of design competitions. For a list of experienced competition advisors, visit the Architect Selection section of our website.

If you would like to publish an announcement for an architectural, landscape, or planning design competition on the website or in the magazine, please email your competition brief to hotline@competitions.org. Please see the Enews page for guidance on your announcement’s layout. All announcements are published free of charge, but are subject to an evaluation process before publication.
