Lecture Flyer and Website Contest

Communicating information to the public about upcoming events is one of the main goals of each society. The primary methods are through distribution of flyers and a society's website. The AIA would like to reward the societies that are producing the best flyers and website. Full details for each contest are available below.

AIA Local Society Website Contest

Deadline: November 5, 2014

The AIA encourages each of its societies to create a website that provides information about the AIA Local Society and the AIA, lists upcoming lectures and other events, and encourages people to join and get involved. The Society that has presented the best-designed website will be recognized at the Society Breakfast at the Annual Meeting. There will also be a cash prize of $200.

The website's home page must include:

  • The AIA logo (2006 approved version).
  • Full name of the AIA Local Society after the Institute's acronym (AIA).
  • The overall design of the website must be visually dynamic and creative in the use of graphics.
