For your convenience, some queries have been enlisted here:
Q: How many projects can I submit?
A: As many as you wish. Each project must be accompanied with an independent submission form.
Q: How old should a project be?
A: The project should have been completed in the last three years. (Completion Date: Aug 2013 onward).
Q: What if I want to submit a Landscape / Urban Design Project?
A: You can. In that case, the ‘area of intervention’ determines the scale of the project. Planning projects are not allowed.
Q: My data is very heavy. How can I email it?
A: Please compress the data to a minimum package size of 200mb. You can send the package through ‘WeTransfer’ or similar data sharing platforms to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ensure that you send the form separately in an email titled ‘TML Project Submission – Project Name’ OR ‘TML Project Nomination 2016 – Project Name’.
Q: I have composed panels of the project. Can I submit the same?
A: We wish to evaluate the data independent of the composition of content on Panels. It helps in the evaluation being completely objective.
Q: I have a lot of images. Why only 15 Photographs and 15 Images?
A: Because, if your project is short-listed, we will request further information within required formats. For the first shortlist, a restriction is introduced to prevent the jury from having content-fatigue. The move is also to prompt the art of elimination.
Q: What if I have done this project in collaboration?
A: In that case, please mention the names of all the collaborators involved. Consultants are to be listed separately.
Q: I am working on a project in a firm / it was my project during my training. Can I submit it?
A: Matter. takes authorship seriously. Only principal firms and architects / firms and architects in collaboration can submit the project. If the authorship of any project is in question, the project will be disqualified from the process.
Q: What about unbuilt projects? Or partially-built projects?
A: While unbuilt projects are not permissible, we consider partially-built projects, more so, phased projects with one or more phases built as valid entries.
Q: If my project is not short-listed this year, can I re-submit again?
A: Yes. You can submit the project in the next cycle as long as it meets the eligibility criteria.
Q: When is the next cycle of submission scheduled for?
A: The next cycle of The Merit List is 2016-17 Cycle. It is open to submissions and nominations presently.
