Resilient Homes Design Challenge

​CALLING ALL ARCHITECTS TO DESIGN RESILIENT HOMES

The World Bank, Build Academy, Airbnb and GFDRR are calling upon architects to design small, cost-effective (under $10,000), sustainable homes​ for people living in underdeveloped areas that both reduce the risk of damage and enable rapid reconstruction following a natural disaster.

Winning designs will be published and winners will be invited to exhibit at the World Bank in Washington DC, USA and other select global venues. Winning designs could also eventually inform resilient housing or reconstruction work for World-Bank-funded projects in places like the Caribbean, South and East Asia, etc.​

Register now for FREE on www.ResilientHomesChallenge.com to participate in this prestigious, global competition!

WHY RESILIENT HOMES?

Natural disasters are on the rise. Since 1990, natural disasters have affected 217 million people every single year. Hundreds of floods, storms, heat waves and droughts have left about 606,000 people dead and 4.1 billion injured or homeless around the world since 1995. In 2017 alone, 19 million lost their homes due to natural disasters. it is often the poorest that suffer the most from these shocks.

As architects and engineers, we can design resilient and sustainable homes that both reduce the risk of damage and enable rapid reconstruction following a disaster by helping governments and individuals to create to implement the creation of resilient cities as well as a speedy recovery more efficiently.

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?

1) Sign up NOW for FREE on www.ResilientHomesChallenge.com. You can participate on your own or form your team
2) Participate in optional educational tutorials to enhance your knowledge of the context
3) Receive optional regular feedback from Experts and on group forums on your designs
4) Submit your final proposal by November 30th, 2018 at the very latest
5) A highly reputable Jury will select and announce the winners on December 14th, 2018

DESIGN GUIDELINES & CRITERIA

The challenge has been designed for three scenarios. Design teams can submit designs for a single scenario or all three scenarios depending on their preference.​

Scenario 1: Earthquakes & tropical storms on islands​
Scenario 2: Earthquakes & landslides in mountain & inland areas​
Scenario 3: Tropical storms & floods in coastal areas​

Design teams are encouraged to look beyond “fully prefabricated” housing designs in order to allow incorporating local building materials into their designs; designs could be part prefabricated with a clear aim towards ease of construction​, but do not need to have any prefabricated elements at all if the designer deems it appropriate.

Architects can participate as an individual or as part of a team. At least one member of the team should have an architectural or/and engineering degree. Final year students of architecture are allowed to participate as members of a team that contains at least one person with a completed architectural degree. Architecture firms and architects who have dealt with this problem on the ground are also encouraged to participate and submit designs that may have been used in some specific place in the past.

For designers, previous architectural experience is highly recommended. It is furthermore encouraged to have non-designers on the team who are social workers, economists, policy makes, developers, or business people who can integrate their knowledge and skills with the work of the designers.

MALTA INTERNATIONAL PHOTO AWARD

ABOUT US

The Malta International Photo Award (MIPA) is a photography award that aims at providing aspiring photographers from all around the globe with the chance to share their passion and world. We strive to connect the world through photography, and showcase the nature and cultures of different regions of the world to a global audience.

MIPA wants to provide international photographers with a deep insight into different approaches towards photography, and we hope to encourage people to push their personal and professional boundaries.

The ‘Malta’ element is an essential part of the conception of this international photo award. The country’s national language, Maltese, is rooted in Arabic but heavily influenced by Romance tongues. The modern people of Malta are descendent from countries in the Middle East, North Africa, the Mediterranean and Northern European. The islands’ history dates as far back as 3500 BC, bestowing them with an enormous breadth of cultural and artistic heritage. The country is an emerging cosmopolitan home to an ever growing population of expats that have travelled from all over the world to live and work there.

As such, the Malta International Photo Award wants to adopt the Maltese outlook on life – we look outside of the confines of a small island to the rest of the world, and we welcome everyone to join in.

SUBMIT YOUR PHOTO BEFORE THE DEADLINE

Participants can submit their photographs by no later Friday 30th November at 3:00pm CET.

An Entry fee of €10 is required for each photograph submitted in the categories of Nature, People, Abstract and Cities.

An Entry fee of €30 is required for each series submitted in the Storytelling category.

Please remember to read our Award Rules and Terms and Conditions before submitting your photographs.

REVIEW OF SUBMISSIONS

The Malta International Photo Award has a strong focus on delivering a quality jury of experts, so as to ensure that all entry participants’ work is reviewed by the right people. The Jury will be reviewing all the entries, consulting among themselves, and selecting the top 25 images or collections (for storytelling) in each category.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF PRIZES

Photography is a craft that must be compensated accordingly, so our prizes have been tailored to reflect this.

The winners in each category will be announced after the jury review has been concluded, and they will be notified through their personal account.

A public announcement will be made through our website on the 20th December 2018.

OPTIONAL PERSONAL EVALUATION

We aim to offer a clear and transparent evaluation process for interested participants, which will be delivered by one of the expert jury members. This is important to us, as we believe that every photographer should have the opportunity to learn and grow from the work they submit.

An Evaluation fee of €10 is required for each photograph submitted in the categories of Nature, People, Abstract and Cities.

An Evaluation fee of €30 is required for each series submitted in the Storytelling category.

Each evaluation will be provided by the Chairman of the Jury, Prof. Arne Hodalič, where he will give photographers an in-depth constructive feedback about the pictures.

CATEGORIES

CITIES

‘Cities’ aims at having photographers focusing on architectural elements, delving into urban lifestyles, and also looking at life on the street.

NATURE

‘Nature’ is a theme that can be best explained as landscapes, wildlife, and the scientific curiosities that exist in the natural world. Themes such as agriculture, the oceans, forests, freshwater bodies, and mountains are all accepted.

PEOPLE

‘People’ focuses on the human figure, which has long been a source of fascination and inspiration. The focus should include portraits and scenes that provide a glimpse into daily life, with a person or persons being the main subject or theme of the study.

ABSTRACT

‘Abstract’ is our experimental category. There is no concept in this theme, and photographers are invited to be non-objective and to come up with visual photographs that can evoke a deep-thought process in the viewer. All kinds of digital manipulation are allowed in this category.

STORYTELLING

‘Storytelling’ is a category that invites the photographer to submit a series of 5 images. While it is true that every photograph has its own story, sometimes one image does not do the story justice. As such, we would like photographers to tell a story through a collection of images that work harmoniously together.

Visit our Award Rules section to find out more details about the specifications to keep in mind when submitting your photographs.

PRIZE

GRAND PRIZE

The grand prize will be awarded for the top 3photos or collections (for storytelling) from each category – a total amount of €45,000.

This will be split into each of the five categories:

The winning picture receives €5,000

The runner-up receives €3,000

The third placed picture receives €1,000

SECOND PRIZE

The second Prize will be awarded to the top 15 photos or collections (for storytelling) from each category.

The selected pictures and collections will be exhibited at the prestigious Malta Postal Museum in Valletta, Malta, during a public exhibition in February 2019.

THIRD PRIZE

The third prize will be awarded to the top 25 photos or collections (for storytelling) from each category.

The selected pictures and collections will be featured in a high quality publication by the Malta International Photo Award.

In addition, all pictures selected for the above prizes will be listed on our website under the ‘Winners Gallery’, as well as international recognition for each photographer through our marketing process.
