The jury's mandate
The jury's mandate is to evaluate projects in which design and/or architecture is the driving force behind innovative results that create social, environmental and economic value.
Jury member selection
Around 20 professionals are engaged by Design and Architecture Norway to jury the DOGA Award for Design and Architecture.
In the process of selecting jury members, DOGA requests input from professional organisations. The jury members must be leading in their field and have experience in both the public and private sectors.
The DOGA Award is determined based on digital entries. The application form and corresponding links and images form the basis for the jury evaluation.
In special cases, the jury may request to visit the project or test physical models or products.
