open for entries


AHEAD MEA 2019 is now open for entries! You can start your submission here.

Projects completed between January 2018 - February 2019 are eligible for entry. You can view the full checklist here, which guides you through the entry process.

The judges will be looking for submissions showing rigorous and appropriate design, demonstrating a sensible use of budget to contribute to the guest experience as well as the 'theatre' of hotel life while satisfying the client brief.

Submitted material should demonstrate clearly why the project is thought to be worth an award in its chosen category and how the design sets the project at an award winning level.

The deadline for entries is 30 April 2019.
